I went to see Wicked today, in the Apollo at Victoria.
It was a group trip, organised by the Concert Band (with a few other stragglers) during Reading Week, because we’re playing a Wicked medley in band this year.
I’ve seen Wicked before, about three years ago, but that didn’t make all that much difference, to be honest. The show is still spectacular.
The singers were incredible. The staging was incredible.
The story is still entrancing, and ties in gorgeously with the original Baum Wizard of Oz, bringing everything together beautifully.
I cannot praise Wicked enough – it’s one of my favourite musicals, and the two stagings I’ve seen of it now were equally fantastic. It was a magnificent night out. I nearly want to go again already!
