THE AWARD-WINNING WEST END MUSICAL WICKED

WICKED, the record-breaking hit West End musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, has added an additional summer matinee on Thursday 22 August at 2.30pm. Tickets are now on sale.

Recently acclaimed as “one of the most popular West End musicals ever" (Evening Standard), the London production of the global musical phenomenon is already the 16th longest-running West End musical of all time. While continuing its open-ended run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre (where tickets are currently on sale until 26 April 2014) a major new production will tour the UK and Ireland, opening at Manchester’s Palace Theatre in September 2013.
