The Apollo Victoria Theatre in London has been the home to the hit musical Wicked since 2006.
Opened as a Cinema in 1930, the now 'Apollo Victoria' is a 2,304-capacity theatrical venue with art deco design. On 15th October 1930 the New Victoria opened with the film Old English and a stage show called Hoop-La, years of highs and lows followed. Over the years, it was transformed into one of the West End's musical houses, with major productions such as The Sound of Music with Petula Clark, Camelot with Richard Harris, and Fiddler on the Roof with Topol.
In 1984 Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical extravaganza Starlight Express opened and considered the Apollo Victoria its home for many years. Other recent musicals have included Bombay Dreams and Saturday Night Fever. In 2006 Wicked, the smash-hit Broadway show, opened and continues to go from strength to strength.
