Wicked The Musical
Advantages: Fantasic songs, great storyline
Disadvantages: Only showing in London
If you think the Wizard of Oz is good then be prepared to join the Wicked side. This musical is a must see for anyone looking for entertainment when in London. I have taken friends who are not fans of the theatre and they love it just as much as myself who likes to go to all the time! I guess most people reading these reviews will have never seen it before and I do not wish to spoil any of the story as I think one of the best things about this show is that you will not be expecting to love it as much as you will when you leave wanting more. I enjoy taking people to this musical as their reactions to it are always so positive.
The ticket prices are reasonable, I normally pay £15 for stall seats. The songs are memorable and witty, the story flows and is entertaining throughout. There is a CD available meaning you can take Wicked home with you or in the car and enjoy singing along with it. Once you have seen it you are likely to be eager to drag the next unlikely fan along.
This review does not detail any of the story or provide background information for the reason that I want newbies to simply experience this show for what it is, which for those lucky enough to give it a go without knowing too much, is a fantastic often unexpected joy - you do not need to be a fan of the theatre to enjoy this one!
Summary: Worth seeing over and over again
