 Wicked Musical Breaks

Wicked, has just won the “Musical I would most likely recommend to my Friends” award – and I have to say I agree (although I didn’t vote) as I do find myself recommending this show many more times for musical breaks than I recommend a lot of others.

London’s spellbinding and spectacular smash hit musical, tells the incredible untold story of the legendary witches from L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and explains why one came to be called ‘good’ and the other ‘wicked’.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s ‘outstanding novel‘ (The Independent), Wicked is an ‘eye-poppingly lavish show‘ (Sunday Express)  which transports audiences to a fantasy world of wizardry, witchcraft, sorcery and spells, with Grammy® Award-winning music, Tony® Award-winning sets and costumes and stunning special effects.

Wicked Musical Breaks

Wicked is full of special effects, amazing scenery and beautiful costumes. AND it’s a good story! All-in-all, a brilliant highlight to any London Theatre Break.

The music is great American, modern musical stuff: superb chorus numbers, massive power ballads, dramatic underscoring, but there is also light and shade, allowing the characters their quiet times of introspection on stage!

And although we think we know the characters – the witches, Dorothy, the tin man, the lion and the scarecrow – we are in for quite a shock, as this show tell us what The Wizard of Oz never did! And whilst we se this show we get tantalizing glimpses of the other story: which really adds to the fun of the show without dominating it too much.
