With references to and dialogue from the original storyline of Dorothy and friends, Wicked cleverly conveys a new take on a classic story.

Press reviews

Harper's Bazaar
Eight years in the West End would tire some musicals, but it's only matured Wicked into one of the country's strongest and most enduringly popular shows. Enlightening, hilarious, heartbreaking and suitably magical ? if you haven't seen it yet, do

Wicked: London

Trailer and video

In the musical Wicked, based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, we know Elphaba as the unpopular, green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West, but what about the other side of the story? How did she become so wicked? Was she born that way or was it because of propaganda from the wizard? Or was she just a misunderstood and victimised person whose behaviour is only an action against the charlatan Wizard’s corrupt government? We shall find out as the story unfolds. The musical also explores the relationship between Elphaba and the bubbly and ever-popular Galinda, who becomes known as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, due to the fact that she doesn’t have the courage to defy the wizard.

Like Harry Potter, this is cult theatre and will appeal to fans of wizards of witches.

Characters

Elphaba – Misunderstood green-skinned girl who becomes known as the Wicked Witch of the West.

Glinda – Bubbly and popular roommate of Elphaba at Shiz University who changed her name from Galinda to Glinda and becomes known as The Good Witch of the North.

Nessarose – Elphaba’s wheelchair-user half sister.

Boq – A Munchkin who is Nessarose’s love-interest, but who falls in love with Glinda

The Wizard of Oz – The corrupted ruler of Oz

Madame Morrible – The headmistress of Shiz University.

Fiyero – A Winkie prince and love interest of both Elphaba and Glinda.

Doctor Dillamond – A talking Goat and professor at Shiz.

Wicked: London Theatre Break with St Giles Hotel, Aug 2011

Absolutely amazing! Hotel was extreamly central and everything was no more than 25mins walk or a short bus ride, Oxford street 1minute away! Hotel was clean and cosy, shower gorgeous and hot and for a young couple it was everything we needed :) breakfast was also really good. The theatre seats were very good, we had a fantastic weekend!

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Avni Hotel, Aug 2011

There was a slight problem at the hotel, but was quickly dealt with and alternative rooms found for our short stay, clean and bright, breakfast was continental staff helpful with taxis directions etc. The show was great as most West End productions are, slight technical delay before second half but did not spoil the evening.

Review by Pat Thomas

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Bayswater Inn, Oct 2011

Website, customer service and booking was quick and easy. Theatre experience was very good and the seats were excellent - it would have been helpful if there was an opportunity to book a 2nd theatre venue as well for people staying more than 1 night. Hotel was good. It would have been helpful if some information regarding London Transport was available on booking as well - i.e. Oyster Cards - this was our first visit to London and spent a lot of money on the underground before we realised that we could buy Oyster cards for a reduced fare. All in all it was a very good experience ...... Thank You.

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Park Plaza Riverbank, Aug 2011

the booking process was very easy, i liked the fact that you offered choices for all options, e.g seats, times etc (your competitor websites do not offer the matinnee as an option) . i was very happy with the hotel, but think it would be good to offer reviews on the hotels. your customer service was spot on

Review by STEVEN FARR

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Holiday Inn Express Hammersmith, Aug 2011

The theatre experience was totally fabulous, a brilliant weekend thank you. The service of Just London Theatre Breaks was really good, very informative & quick to respond to my queries. The only thing that i would change, would be to be able to select your seats within each price range. The hotel was clean & very comfortable within in a ideal location, just a couple of stops on the tube. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Although this is not your fault, but the thing i was disappointed about was the amount of people getting up & leaving there seat during the show, i find this very rude, i know in other theatres you can't leave until the interval, so why are you able to at Apollo Victoria?

Review by Bev

Wicked: London Theatre Break with The Grosvenor, Oct 2011

I booked the Theatre Break for myself and a friend for a birthday celebration and found the whole experience spot on. It would have be useful to have some guests comments on the available hotels as I found myself trawling through them all via trip advisor to filter out the not so good ones. However, once deciding on the hotel the website was easy to use and the confirmation was very clearly set out. Following my booking I also received notification that the hotel were undergoing refurbishments and if I wasn't happy with this I could change hotels. I was already aware of the refurbishments so was happy to stick with my original hotel choice. I have just returned from my break and it was fantastic!! I rang the hotel a few days before our visit and advised that it was my friends birthday. On arrival at the hotel they wished her a happy birthday and had given us a complimentary room upgrade :-) it was a shame we were only staying for one night as the room was lovely! The service in the hotel was also exceptional. The only negative things we could find was that the lighting in the hotel room was very dim and there was not a mirror over the dressing table area which made it difficult for drying hair and applying make up!! The shower was also too hot to use, Fortunately there was a second shower head directly from the bath taps that the temperature was adjustable. Our hotel was a 2 minute walk from the theatre and we couldn't have asked for better seats. We requested the dress circle and were allocated seats in the centre 2 rows from the front! The show was certainly 'Wicked'!! we loved every minute of it! Overall our weekend was great and I will certainly be using Just London Theatre breaks again - I am already looking at which show to go and see near Christmas!!

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Sheraton Park Lane, Apr 2011

The whole booking procedure with Just London Theatre Breaks was very good - their website was easy to follow and understand and provided enough detail at every stage of the booking process The theatre was easy to locate and our seats were in a very good position, allowing clear visibility of the stage I was slightly disappointed with the hotel, as although the staff were helpful and the hotel clean, the room was very basic and looked "tired" - there was also no tea and coffee in the room and you had to request it via reception Generally though, we had a good time and would recommend the experience to others

Review by CAROLINE HARPER

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Corona Hotel, Jul 2011

The theatre experience was very enjoyable, we watched the show Wicked and had seats which were very far back on the dress circle (Row T) however, we still had a great view. The show was absolutely amazing, the only piece of advice I could give, would be to the ladies to make sure you go to the toilet before entering the theatre, the queue was very long. We walked down the road to our hotel the Corona this hotel was in easy reach by foot with supermarkets and restaurants on the way so plenty of choice for evening meal etc. On first entering the hotel I felt the receptionist could have been a bit more friendly. Our room was very clean, however, very small compared to a premier inn or Jury’s inn. The only fault with the room was that the TV had a very poor reception and only the basic 5 channels. When going down to breakfast in the morning we were greeted by what I can only describe as a scary lady. Although we laugh about it now, at the time we wondered whether we should ask any questions, or just stay quite, we choose the stay quite option. One guest was asked if she wanted tea or coffee, she did say tea but meant to say coffee, the scary lady was then very quick to reprimand the guest ,telling the guest that ,“madam you said tea and you now want coffee, you made the mistake” when the same lady was asked later if she wanted more coffee the scary lady reminder here of her previous mistake, presumably to insure she got her point across (here the customer is not always right). I also felt very sorry for the scary lady’s assistant ,who seemed to suffer more abuse than the customers. We had a continental breakfast which was very nice but I was quite glad to leave the restaurant. Checkout was straight forward and off we went.

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Holiday Express Hammersmith, Aug 2011

The seats were in a fantastic position and the show was amazing! The hotel was in a good location, close to shops and tube station. The hotel was lovely with firendly staff and good facilities. The room was perfect for the price we paid.

Review by Kane Tugby

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Holiday Villa Hotel, Jul 2011

We had a thorougly brilliant time! The hotel was of good quality, though perhaps in need of a little modernisation in places. Staff at both the hotel and the theatre were extremely helpful, as was your telephone operator when we called to ask if it would be possible to change dates (in the end, we had no need to, but the man was so helpful and empathetic when we enquired). The seats were a long way from the stage, but were centrally located, so we had an excellent straight-on view of the performance. We felt that our break offered excellent value for money and were very pleased indeed.

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Best Western Cromwell, Aug 2011

Theatre tickets were excellent and no complaints about the hotel either. Exactly what i hoped for

Review by Juli Willis

Wicked: London Theatre Break with The Grosvenor, Jul 2011

Booking the weekend trip was really easy and priced very well compared to other similar sites. The hotel was excellent, despite having read differing comments about the hotel we weren't sure what to expect, and although there is currently extensive refurbishment work being carried out, this didn't affect our stay. We were offered a room upgrade which we took and our room was lovely, the only bad thing is that in the early hours of the following morning we were woken up by loud noises caused, I think, by an adjacent room running water or a shower and this carried on for about 20 minutes, the noise was really loud and kept me awake. Despite this, I would definitely book the hotel again and recommend it, it was such a beautiful building and will be wonderful when the work there is complete. Wicked was a brilliant show, really enjoyed it, our seats were quite high up so it was necessary to hire the binoculars to see any detail close up but a great show and enjoyed by myself and my 12 year old son.

Wicked: London Theatre Break with The Grosvenor, Aug 2011

The website was easy to navigate. The theatre tickets were brilliant, as was the show! The hotel was fantastic, really big, light, airy, clean room, comfortable beds, wonderful breakfast. The atmosphere at the hotel was relaxed, no pressure, but staff were on hand to help if needed. My daughter and I were really happy with our theatre break.

Really good, thought the quality of the room was good, nice price and the seats were mint :)

Review by Steve A

Wicked: London Theatre Break with Travelodge Southwark, Jul 2011

The Travelodge in Southwark was in a excellent position just a 2 minute walk from the underground station. Although I originally missed the fact that there was some train noise (it did mention this on the Travelodge website) It did not cause us any problems although we were on the 6th floor but facing the back where the trains passed. The staff were very polite and helpful. Booking in just took a couple of minutes, the room was big enough for our needs and there was also air conditioning in the room which came in very useful as it was a warm weekend. There was plenty of choice of food and a coffee machine giving you the option of all the usual types of coffee IE Latte etc. The show we went to see was Wicked, on the website it promised excellent seats and they did not disappoint. We were on the second row back in the dress circle almost in the middle. There was no problem getting the tickets and the show was excellent. I would definitely book with Just London Theatre Breaks again.
