Here's what you, the audience, thought about this magical musical!
Have you ever wondered why Wicked is one of the best musicals out there? With being one of the longest-running musicals, alongside The Lion King, Chicago and The Phantom Of The Opera, winning three Tony Awards, a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and now the upcoming heavily-anticipated film adaptation which stars none other than Broadway, pop star Ariana Grande, Grammy award winner Cynthia Erivo, Brigeton's Jonathan Bailey, Jeff Goldblum and many more stars!
What's the story?
Our story begins in the hallowed halls of Oz's Shiz University, where we meet the Elphaba. Born with green skin, she has been made an outcast, by everyone including her own father, but deep within Elphaba is a great power that's just waiting to be set free. Unfortunately, her time at college gets off to a rocky start when she's given a new roommate - the perky, more perfect-than-perfect Glinda. In the beginning, the two absolutely despise each other, but after a simple act of kindness at a party, they realize that they may not be so different after all.
Over the course of their studies, they become firm friends, but when Elphaba uncovers a sinister plot that could destroy the whole world of Oz, she must choose between keeping her friend or learning how to become... Wicked!
Still, need more to convince you? Here's what the audience had to say about Wicked!
BELIEVE THE HYPE!
Andrew from Santa Monica, CA
"I tend to be wary of anything with the amount of hype Wicked has received, but on a recent business trip to NYC I went with a colleague and was very pleasantly surprised - awesome show, one of the best I've seen. Great fun."
CVL from Woodbridge, VA USA
"Wicked was THE MOST fabulous musical that I've seen in recent years, and I've seen quite a few. Everyone should see this musical, you will never be able to look at "The Wizard of Oz" without thinking of Elphaba "Defying Gravity" or singing "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!"'
Nicole from London, UK
"Wicked is the best musical to hit the theatre in years. It has incredible music and lyrics accompanied by a compelling storyline that will leave you wanting to watch it again and again! The best part is that it is family friendly show that appeals to all ages. GO SEE IT!!"
WICKED WAS WELL, WICKED!
Lindsey Chapman from UK
"I have seen lots of west end shows and this show is right up at the top. Seats were excellent and Ashleigh Gray was magnificent. Only saw it on the 21st Jan and alreading booking to go back again. It has great music, humour and is throughly enjoyable."
Norma from Cape May Court House, NJ USA
"Wicked was truly magical and spellbinding-everyone in my immediate area in the audience thoroughly enjoyed the perfomance. The actors were excellent and totally professional and the music was awsome-had to buy the CD before we left the theater! I wish all my friends and family could see this show-it is amazing!"
