West End Musical 'Wicked' Adds Extra Summer Matinee On August 22nd 2013

 'Wicked', the record-breaking hit West End musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, has added an additional summer matinee on Thursday 22 August at 2.30pm. Tickets are now on sale. 

Recently acclaimed as "one of the most popular West End musicals ever" (Evening Standard), the London production of the global musical phenomenon is already the 16th longest-running West End musical of all time. While continuing its open-ended run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre (where tickets are currently on sale until 26 April 2014) a major new production will tour the UK and Ireland, opening at Manchester's Palace Theatre in September 2013.

Cast subject to change from 18 November 2013. 

Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. 

Wicked has music and lyrics by multi GRAMMY® and Academy Award® winner Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman, musical staging by Wayne Cilento and is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Olivier Award nominee Joe Mantello. Wicked is based on the acclaimed novel, 'Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West', by Gregory Maguire.
