Wicked The Musical
Advantages: Amazing music, acting and altogether a happy experience
Disadvantages: A noisy experience and quite dark in places, may be too scary for young children
Love the theatre? Enjoy musicals? This is the show for you. After attending the show 3 times in a year, I feel I am eligible to call myself a true fan. The story follows 2 witches, the Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba and Glinda, the Good Witch of the North and their relationship before their encounters in the infamous story the Wizard of Oz.
The show takes a musical approach and is infamous worldwide for the amazing musical and acting performed throughout it. The story leaves the viewer feeling very happy inside and makes them want to rush home to watch the Wizard of Oz, but instead of voting for Dorothy, this time being in favour of Elphaba, the one everyone once thought the "baddie"! And knowing that she was just misunderstood and aware of the true ending, puts the Wizard of Oz in a new light.
Each visit to the Apollo Victoria, I have found different actors playing the favourite roles and have yet to find any who have ceased to impress and altogether amaze me, therefore showing the quality of the actors and the lengths they will go to to ensure the show is of the highest standard. I would recommend Wicked to absolutely everyone as you will walk out the theatre to find even the most quiet people singing the tunes of the show!
Summary: A show for everyone, with music that continues to amaze each and every time!
