Book a learning experience or reward trip to Wicked and discover "world-class musical theatre" (Official London Theatre):

"One of the most successful musicals of all time, 'Wicked' is a story of an unlikely friendship and how the truth isn't always what meets the eye. Add spine-tingling ballads, a dragon, and stage magic into the mix, and 'Wicked' sets the bar for what musical theatre can be. From the childlike wonder of seeing the magical world of Oz to the political undertones about our leaders' role in society, there's something in 'Wicked' for everyone."

London Theatre

"An unforgettable tale of friendship and acceptance, this ' Wizard of Oz' prequel is a dazzling origin story for an iconic villain. Thanks to Eugene Lee's set design and Susan Hilferty's costumes, this is a production bursting at the seams with technicolor fantasy; Winnie Holzman's script delivers pathos alongside the spectacle and director Joe Mantello knows how to balance knockout drama with intimacy and excellent performances. Stephen Schwartz's score deftly handles the emotional highs and lows of the story and the cast deliver his soaring music with gusto."

"We must all be off to see this wicked and wonderful vision of Oz. It is the spectacle, the experience of a magical mystery tour through the fantasyland of 'Oz' that takes and holds our attention. When it comes to inventive make-believe, 'Wicked' more than lives up to its name. Joe Mantello's production expertly marshals a remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises, and sensations - and 'Wicked' works like a dream."

Evening Standard

"Stephen Schwartz's spine-tingling score is brilliantly delivered and Winnie Holzman's script is both heartfelt and humorous. Eugene Lee's larger-than-life set is a mechanical masterpiece, Kenneth Posner's lighting design is gasp-inducing, the luscious costumes by Susan Hilferty are a gorgeous sensory overload and (at the heart of the show), Elphaba's story resonates with so many: being different, ostracised, perceptively unloved, and standing up for what you believe in."

BroadwayWorld UK

"One of the greatest musicals of our time, Stephen Schwartz's music and lyrics bring the imagination of Gregory Maguire's novel to life in a grand display in this Tony Award®-winning musical. Joe Mantello's direction ensures that every scene is carefully crafted, providing bucket loads of dramatic tension. 'Wicked' is a truly magical show full of imagination and emotion that's not to be missed."


"A delightful, thought-provoking show, 'Wicked' proves things aren't always as they seem. Full of heart, energy, and some of the biggest musical numbers in stage history, it's a clever, fun, and endearing perspective on one of your favourite stories that will make you rethink how you look at classic 'baddies'. A huge, bright, colourful production that's full of wonder and joy, this incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz is a must-see."
