'The award-winning WICKED provides the backstory of The Wizard of Oz – effectively the framing of the not-remotely-wicked Wicked Witch of the West. This sumptuous show brings new moral complexity to the unseen Dorothy's adventures on the Yellow Brick Road, it's subtle and subversive –
and suitable for all ages.'

'...WICKED combines spectacular visuals and production values with an ingenious story, brilliant performances and genuine emotion.'

'A WIZARD HIT.
You get a lot of bang for your buck - expense has not been spared on sets, costumes, prosthetic make-up and masks, while the dance routines and flying sequences are spectacular. But the visual extravaganza would be nothing without the subtler pleasures to be derived from the clever and rather cheeky way WICKED links arms with the classic Wizard of Oz story.'
Jasper Rees, The Sunday Times
'...WICKED IS SIMPLY FANTASTIC. A brilliantly twisted take on The Wizard of Oz.'

'...ENTER ANOTHER WORLD AND PREPARE TO DISCOVER A PARALLEL UNIVERSE TO THE WIZARD OF OZ. You can hear a pin drop while the audience in a packed theatre are totally caught up in the fantastic story, and then the place erupts with laughter, cheering, applause and, at the curtain call, a thunderous standing ovation. WICKED IS WONDERFUL.'
Roger Foss, The Steve Allen Show, LBC 97.3
'...THE MOST INCREDIBLE MUSICAL I HAVE SEEN IN YEARS.
An unbelievable show with an amazing cast, amazing special effects and incredible costumes. WICKED takes your breath away...'
Phillip Schofield, This Morning, ITV1
'AN EYE-POPPINGLY LAVISH SHOW.
A musical about the casting of spells seems to have duly cast its own and hypnotises audiences who have embraced it as not so much a musical as an event. Joe Mantello's meticulous recreation of his Broadway production is a superbly staged exercise in crowd control and stage-craft with Cirque du Soleil-like production values. The result taps into a genuine public appetite for spectacle, art and heart.'
Mark Shenton, Sunday Express
