WICKED
Winner of 90 international awards, Wicked has been casting its magical spell over audiences of all ages across the world for a decade, and flies into Birmingham Hippodrome this month! 
 
Based on Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed novel, Wicked brilliantly re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, to tell the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
 
Packed with thrilling technical wizardry, dazzling costumes, an ingenious and witty story, and show-stopping songs (by multi GRAMMY® and Academy Award® winner Stephen Schwartz), Wicked is an unforgettable, enchanting experience that is not to be missed.

Kirsty Lee \\ 24/07/2014
Amazing, Wonderful, just WICKED!! Loved ever minute of the show, everyone was amazing and the girls playing Elphaba and Glinda were outstanding. Looking to return and see this again before it moves on. Well done one and all.
Tracey \\ 24/07/2014
Took my family to the Saturday matinee. It by far exceeded my expectations as sometimes matinees feel a little half hearted or done mostly by understudies of understudies. However, this was brilliant the 2 main girls were particularly outstanding.The production and costumes were colourful and fun. Hadn't seen the show before and hadn't expected it too be so funny. Gaaarrrlinda was really funny. Highly recommended!!!
Alison W \\ 21/07/2014

Even though i thought Wicked was going to be something for the "girls" i found that i really enjoyed the show. The best show i've seen all year. I have told all of my family and friends about it!. Every one of the cast were excellent. I love to watch the musical support under the stage and i was even impressed with their performance. Excellent. I love the Hip!

Lola Ralph \\ 20/07/2014
'Wicked' It does what it says on the tin..it is WICKED! Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. I was mesmerised! The two leading ladies were exceptional, not just with their voices but small comedy parts too! I did not know the story before seeing the show, but was able to follow the story which explained the lead to the Wizard of Oz and events in the film, which may not have been appreciated beforehand.Lovely costumes and excellent supporting cast, not to mention the orchestra who must have been very warm in the pit on such a warm evening! Another excellent production at a wonderful venue. Keep it up Brum!
Mrs Jayne Keay \\ 19/07/2014
I thought this was going to be too girlie for me but it wasn't. Best show I've seen all year. Wicked witch was "wicked"!
Nav & Marie  \\ 19/07/2014

tony \\ 18/07/2014
First time I've ever taken my mum to a show like this and to see her face light up the way it did was priceless! She had the best night ever and hasn't stopped talking about it since! I'd go again tomorrow if I could! 5* performance the cast should be very proud of the show they put on and the Musicians in the Pit were the making of this masterpiece! Thank you to the workers at the hippodrome, the cast and the crew for an unforgettable night :)
Megan Poole \\ 18/07/2014
Went to the matinée yesterday. The cast & crew & musicians are to be applauded. They sang their hearts out & had to do it all again for the evening performance. The costumes were superb especially the emerald city inhabitants & the 2 female leads were amazing. Clever special effects & scenery complimented. I would go & see it again for sure. Anita Wilde.
Anita Wilde \\ 17/07/2014
magical,fantastical,whimsical & very, very enjoyable, fantastic cast, brilliant score & wonderful acting, special mention for Nicki Davis-Jones for playing Elphaba, who would have thought that you would feel sorry for the wicked witch of the west? but she managed to make you feel that way, whatever you do, beg, borrow or steal a ticket to see this wonderful show. we are booking again.
Gary Bowcott \\ 17/07/2014

WowWowWow first time I have seen this excellent show, and I am so glad that it was the Birmingham Hippadrome that made the experience even better for me. Believe me I will be back again to see Wicked again, plus many more shows. Thank You very much for everything. I would also like to praise the member of staff who also went out of his was to show me all the other disabled as I have only ever stayed in the one seat as I did not know if any other disabled seats were better. Very friendly staff who will go out of their way to help. Booking more tickets now, can,t wait to come back. WELL DONE ALL

Wicked was wicked. Fab cast well worth seeing. Congrats to all :)
Tammy Becket \\ 12/07/2014
"Wicked "is the name of the show,and "Wicked" it was, in every positive way. A production to rival any in the West End,or even Broadway... The two leading ladies were magnificent,but kudos to all the cast who made the magic happen collectively,transporting all to Oz and defying gravity,with wonderful effects. Another triumph for the Birmingham Hippodrome,and congratulations to a truly showstopping ensemble and production.
 \\ 12/07/2014
Went on opening night, + Fantastic performance by the leading ladies, Wonderful voices, Garlinda was so funny, loved all the 2hours 20 mins of it. - What happened to Garlinda's bubbles ?
Suzy \\ 11/07/2014
This was West End quality in every respect ...music, singing, dancing, costumes, set...performance an excellent, exhilarating experience...I came out of the theatre with that 'feel-good' factor...highly recommended.
Peter Adams \\ 11/07/2014
Loved it! Great storyline, sets, performances of the cast especially the 2 leading ladies. It gets full marks from me as it really was "Wicked".
