Wicked at West End
Wicked London is more than just a story of good versus evil. It’s about sisterhood, rivalry, love and even bullying and self-acceptance. Everyone has heard of the story of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz in the popular novel by L. Frank Baum. But Wicked picks up a parallel perspective of two girls who are students of sorcery and go on to become ‘Glinda the Good Witch’ and ‘The Wicked Witch of The West’.
Glinda and Elphaba are two girls, as different as they can be, pitted against each other by circumstances. They even fall in love with the same person, intensifying their rivalry. Watch Wicked in London to find out if the Green Witch is truly evil or a victim of her circumstances, and if she wins over the prince in the end!
