As well as continuing its record-breaking run in London’s West End, it recently concluded the international leg of this latest tour (with Bradley Jaden, Jacqueline Hughes and Carly Anderson as the lead trio), visiting venues in Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong, and many others.
This leg of the tour has a month-long engagement at the Bristol Hippodrome early next year, and is due to visit Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Dublin, Sunderland, Southampton, Cardiff and Manchester.
The Wizard of Oz origin musical’s popularity shows no sign of waning, with day seat queues in London consistently going against all expectations – so now if you haven’t been fortunate enough to make it to the capital to see it yet, you really do have no excuses left. And with a cast as good as this, why deny yourself?
Wicked begins its UK tour in Bristol on 31 January 2018, currently due to finish in Manchester on 5 January 2019. Tickets and further details are available on the official website.
