WICKED has announced the opening of its (wait for it!) 25th new booking period. Over 500,000 new tickets for the smash-hit, telling the untold story of the witches of Oz, are being released, with booking extended to Saturday 24 May 2019.
The production recently became the seventh longest-running show currently playing in the West End. Already also the 15th longest-running show in West End theatre history, WICKED has been seen by over 8.5 million people at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre and played almost 5000 performances. Around the world, WICKED has won over 100 major awards, including ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning Best West End Show on three occasions) and two Olivier Audience Awards in the UK.
WICKED currently stars Alice Fearn (Elphaba), Sophie Evans (Glinda), Bradley Jaden (Fiyero), Melanie La Barrie (Madame Morrible), Andy Hockley (The Wizard), Martin Ball (Doctor Dillamond), Sarah McNicholas (Nessarose), Jack Lansbury (Boq), Laura Pick (Standby for Elphaba), Carina Gillespie and Maria Coyne (Standby for Glinda).
WICKED will shortly open a year-long UK & Ireland Tour at Bristol Hippodrome on 31 January 2018 and will subsequently visit Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Dublin, Sunderland, Southampton, Cardiff and Manchester.
