See Wicked for witches, special effects and great family fun!
If you love The Wizard of Oz you’ll enjoy Wicked, the madcap story of the two witches who star in Dorothy and Toto’s splendid adventure, in which Glinda the good witch and the Wicked Witch of the West take to the stage, wowing full-house family audiences night after night. One coveted Grammy award for the show album, three Tony awards and an Olivier award make this one of the West End’s most popular family musical productions.
Wicked – The story
Glinda the good witch and the green faced Wicked Witch of the West were young once. This is the story of their youth, and how they became the women they are. Wicked tells the tale of a deep friendship between the two girls, who meet as sorcery students at Shiz University. Glinda is popular and pretty, but Elphaba is green, constantly misunderstood because of her colour and manner.
It sounds like a simple plot. There are some splendid special effects. But behind the flames and drama there’s a surprisingly poignant tale. The real beauty of Wicked is that it leaves you wondering what’s right and what’s wrong. How would you respond to loneliness and isolation… would you turn out like the Wicked Witch of the West? There are some excellent comic moments to relieve the drama and with a storyline like this, no wonder Wicked is such a great night out for grown-ups as well as children.
Wicked is famous for creating an amazingly powerful theatre atmosphere and manages to pack the house every night. The cast have received rave reviews. And the show’s score is rapidly embedding itself in our culture, just like the scores of so many great West End musicals.
