This is a really late post. We visited the Wicked Musical back in January 2019 as part of a Christmas present for my from my lovely wife.
This was to be a fun packed evening with an awesome pre-theatre Honest Burger and the followed by a trip to Fortnum and Masons for a delicious but far to over priced Maître Choux.
Parking is a nightmare around London, especially when you have an evening showing. Fortunately, we found one of probably 2 pay and display parking around central London near Victoria Station. I can’t remember now what time the show stared but it would have been about 7.30pm. We wanted to get in and get a seat at the bar and have a beverage pre-show.
The merchandise was still the same as it was when the show launched many blue moons ago now. T-Shirts priced at £25.00, Drawstring bags at £15, programmes costing £8. plus so much more.
One thing you will notice though with this theatre is just the sheer amount of leg room you get. We have experienced so many theatres where you are chewing your own knees. Also, you don’t feel anywhere near as penned in like you do at for example The Curious Incident of the Dog in Nighttime.
the show itself was great, two halves separated by a short intermittence. One overwhelmingly frustrating things about the show was the quality of the audio. I found the spectacle and the production to get great, but whenever they sung a song. You just couldn’t understand the words that they were singing.
In conclusion though, it is definitely worth a watch. Seeing the Wizard of Oz from more of a Witches point of view. However, work out the logistics (London Victoria train station is 2 minutes walk).
You can book your tickets from HERE with prices starting from £22.00 plus booking fee (booking fee if booked directly with the theatre).
