While in London, I went to see the musical Wicked at The Apollo Victoria Theatre. The musical Wicked is about a girl named Elphaba who is born with green skin and grows up to be the wicked witch of the west. In the musical, viewers will see that everyone is afraid to become her friend since she is green, yet they’ll make friends with the popular girl named Galinda who changes her name to Glinda towards the end of the show. The story centers around before the Wizard of Oz giving the audience a backstory of what happened before, during and after the Wizard of Oz. The musical first started out in 2003 and has grown tremendously doing shows all over the world both in the US and the UK. In fact, the musical has won around 100 awards. I have always been a fan of the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz and the 2013 Oz the great and Powerful which both relate to the show Wicked. The show was really amazing. The cast did an excellent job, and it is a show that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in seeing the musical. The Apollo Victoria Theatre is gorgeous both inside and out. It has multiple levels of tiered seating. I would definitely see another show at this theatre the next time I visit London. I have also included the links to the Apollo Victoria Theatre and Wicked musical if any of you are interested!
