Happy - First Blog of the - New Year! To celebrate a fantastic year for everyone's favourite Gravity Defying smash hit musical, we thought we'd show you just why it was just so Wonderful.
Firstly, Wicked UK celebrated their 10th Birthday, marking a glorious decade on the West End.
With that, the fabulous Rachel Tucker returned home to the West End and continued to shine as the longest running Elphaba (Catch her whilst you can before she flies off on 28/01/17).
2016 was Wicked's highest ever grossing year. With the week ending Saturday 31 December 2016 as their highest ever grossing week. And the New Years Eve matinee as their highest ever grossing single performance. Breaking 3 of their own big time records from the past 10 years!
In 2016 they were also acclaimed as “one of the West End’s true modern classics” (Metro) and became one of the Top 5 longest running musicals currently playing in the West End and the 18th longest running show in London theatre history. How Popular?
As 2017 begins they are edging closer to welcoming their eight millionth customer and their 4500th performance, promising to be an equally exciting year.
And whilst we're sad to see Rachel Tucker go again, it means that we get to welcome back the fantastic Willemijn Verkaik to the role!
