Wicked, the West End musical phenomenon and “London’s No.1 show” (LBC) is playing at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre!

Why go and see it?

“If you’re looking for an unforgettable night at the theatre, there really is no place like ‘Wicked!’” (Smooth Radio). Book your tickets now!

With music and lyrics by multi-Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, The Prince of Egypt, The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and a book by Tony Award-nominee Winnie HolzmanWicked is currently the ninth longest-running West End musical of all time, having been seen at the Apollo Victoria Theatre London by over ten million people.

Two-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello directs this “devilishly clever spin on The Wizard of Oz” (The Daily Telegraph), with musical staging by Tony-winner Wayne Cilento.

One of the West End’s true modern classics.
An absolute blast. Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes.
An emotional and unforgettable experience.

Based on the novel by Gregory MaguireWicked imagines a beguiling backstory to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters, and reveals the magic that shaped the destinies of two unlikely friends on their remarkable journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

After the continuing success of the Broadway run, two US tours, two UK tours, and countless international productions, Wicked recently celebrated fifteen triumphant years at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. This essential West End musical is the winner of over 100 major international awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy Award and ten theatregoer voted WhatsOnStage Awards (including three for ‘Best West End Show’).

West End star Lucie Jones (Waitress, Les Misérables) plays the role of Elphaba, with Helen Woolf returning to continue her acclaimed performance as Glinda. The Olivier-nominated Sophie-Louise Dann (The Girls) stars as Madame Morrible, with stage and screen legend Gary Wilmot (Anything Goes, The Prince of Egypt) featuring as The Wizard. Ryan Reid (Dreamgirls) plays Fiyero. Carina Gillespie (Nessarose), Nicholas McLean (Boq), and Simeon Truby (Doctor Dillamond) all continue in their starring roles.

Wicked is suitable for a general audience. As a guide to parents and guardians, it is recommended for ages 7+. Please note that loud noises, flashing lights, smoke effects and strobe lighting feature in the production.

Venue Access Information

The Apollo Victoria Theatre has 4 wheelchair bays located at either end of Row F in the Circle. These are accessed via two platform lifts from our Vauxhall Bridge Road entrance; one from street level to foyer and one from the foyer to the circle. Wheelchair users wishing to use the platform lifts are kindly asked to check that their chair does not exceed the following maximum weight and dimensions: 29 inches/74cm width, 33 inches/85cm length, 31stone/ 200kg (wheelchair and patron combined). If your wheelchair exceeds the dimensions and/or weight above, please call the box office on 0800 912 6973 to discuss alternative options. Should you wish to arrive in a wheelchair and transfer into a theatre seat, we can store your wheelchair in a nearby location to be brought to you when required.

If you require lift access, please aim to arrive 30-45 minutes before the performance starts at our Vauxhall Bridge Road entrance. Please notify a member of the Front of House team of your arrival and they will call for the Access Host, who will organise operation of the lifts for you. Please try to arrive on time as the lift cannot be operated during the performance.

Please note, any patrons wishing to use the lifts must contact the box office in advance on 0800 912 6973.

Our accessible toilet can be found in the main foyer near the cloakroom. Access to this toilet is step free once inside the foyer. The bar and merchandise counters are not low level, however, drinks, snacks and merchandise orders can be taken at seats and brought over by staff. For patrons with limited mobility, we advise Circle Rows A-F for the least steps. Please click here for a detailed step guide.

If you wish to make your visit more special, we also have an Ambassador lounge available to book which is level access and can be found as you enter the theatre via the Vauxhall Bridge Road entrance in the main foyer.

The Apollo Victoria auditorium is equipped with Sennheiser MobileConnect WiFi sound amplification system. MobileConnect uses WiFi to deliver superior quality audio to a smart device such as an iPod or iPhone, either through headphones or via a necklace for hearing aid users. The sound levels can be adjusted on your device to suit your needs and our access host will be happy to assist you with this. Devices can be booked via the box office in advance, borrowed on the day, or alternatively patrons can download the Sennheiser MobileConnect app and use their own device. Although we have devices to borrow, we do recommend that patrons download the app so as not to miss out if we run out. Patrons are advised to book Stalls A-P for the best signal.

We regularly schedule Audio Described performances, please check above for an up to date list of these performances and book directly with the venue. Audio description is a live verbal commentary on the visual elements of a production, delivered throughout the performance via a discreet headset. We also offer a touch tour which takes place prior to the show so patrons can familiarise themselves with the set and some of the props and costumes. One week before the performance, those who have pre-booked will also receive a recording with detailed information about the show. The theatre currently has a limited number of large print and Braille programmes available, please request this at the time of booking if you would like a copy.

Autistic Spectrum and Sensory and Communication Difficulties

The theatre can often be a crowded and scary place to be for patrons on the Autistic Spectrum or with Sensory and Communication Difficulties. To help you prepare for your visit, we have a ‘Visual Story’ that we can send to you which describes your visit to the theatre in detail from the minute you step off the tube to you leaving the venue at the end of your visit. Please also let the Box office know if you would like an aisle seat or to be near an exit so should you need to leave the auditorium for any reason during the show, you can easily do so.

Please contact the Access Champion apollovictoriaaccess@theambassadors.com to request the Visual Story.
