On both sides of the Atlantic ocean are the world famous theatre districts of New York’s Broadway & London’s West End and they are the homes to some of the most popular theatres in the entire world. With millions attending productions at each location every year, they put on huge, lavish productions, that get the best critic reviews.
When a top production has run or a number of years in one location, whether it be New York or London, it will then often move to the other location & this musical is no exception, so you can get a Wicked musical ticket -London.

Apollo Victoria Theatre 17 Wilton Road
This 2,328 seat theatre opened as a cinema in 1930. The unique interior is a testament to art deco design.This is how the Apollo advertises itself-“Imagine a fairy cavern under the sea, something no one has never seen or thought of before; huge submarine flowers against the walls that branch up and out and throw mysterious light towards the ceilings above, and glassy illuminated stalactites hanging from above; and a proscenium like a slender host of silver trees, and silvered organ pipes that shoot up to the roof; while the lights change from deep-sea green to the colours of the dawn, and the warm comfort of sunlight”.
