★★★★★

“QUITE SIMPLY, A PHENOMENON.

One of theatre’s greats, Wicked captivates from the get-go. Spectacular and seamless staging,
Stephen Schwartz's absolutely stupendous score and Winnie Holzman’s highly engaging script,
which acts as a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, make Wicked

 AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE.”

The Chronicle

 

“ONE OF THE GREATEST SHOWS THE

SUNDERLAND EMPIRE HAS STAGED.

With spectacular sets, stunning costumes and magical musical moments,

WICKED IS UNMISSABLE.”

Hartlepool Mail / Shields Gazette

 

 “ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SHOWS TO HAVE

 EVER PLAYED AT SUNDERLAND EMPIRE.

Far from the dominant mushy love story of most musicals, this is a show with friendship
at its heart as it spectacularly re-imagines the background to L. Frank Baum’s beloved
Wizard of Oz characters. If you haven’t got your tickets yet, you’ll be
green with envy at the people who have.”

Sunderland Echo

 

“An all-singing, all-dancing prequel to The Wizard of Oz,

WICKED HAS WOWED MILLIONS WORLDWIDE.

The production itself is monumental - the set is beautiful and all 350 costumes immaculate.
15 years on, it is still as enchanting as ever.”

The Northern Echo

 

“A SHOW WORTHY OF EVERY GOOSEBUMP THAT WAS ON MY BODY.

It's no secret that Sunderland Empire attracts some of the biggest shows and names, but I'm
sure there are still people out there that think if you are to see a decent show you will need to go
to the big smoke. Oh how wrong they are.
IF YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON A TICKET I CAN ASSURE
YOU, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.”

The Gazette / Teeside Live

 

"THE BEST MUSICAL THAT WE’VE SEEN

IN THE NORTH EAST SO FAR THIS YEAR.

Wicked is a cultural phenomenon.”
