Wicked Liverpool tickets
The U.K. and Ireland tour of the smash-hit musical Wicked offers Liverpool audiences the opportunity to witness on stage the magical, musical story of the witches of the Land of Oz -- the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch -- long before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked brings to life the fascinating story of the two young witches, through songs such as "Popular" and Defying Gravity", plus spectacular sets and award-winning costumes. With Wicked Liverpool tickets in hand, theatregoers will ponder the intricacies of a complex friendship, the themes of good and evil, and the timeless trials of star-crossed love. The Liverpool Empire Theatre is the venue for this unmissable show, which has broken box office records worldwide and won more than 100 major international awards.
Wicked the musical has its inspiration in Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, which itself was based upon the 1900 novel by L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Anyone familiar with the iconic characters of Oz will also recognise Wicked's nods to the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
With songs by Stephen Schwartz and writing by Winnie Holzman, Wicked made its Broadway debut in 2003. It was an instant hit, met with critical acclaim and sold-out seats. The original production won three Tony Awards, and the original cast album won a Grammy. In 2016, Wicked became the ninth longest-running show in Broadway history.
The West End production of Wicked debuted in 2006 at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. It proved as popular with London audiences as it was on Broadway, being nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards and winning two. The West End production also won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Night Out. Wicked has become the 17th longest running show in the history of London theatre. Wicked's first U.K. and Ireland tour took place in 2013, with its second following in 2018.
The Wicked Liverpool experience
The Liverpool Empire Theatre, notable as the largest two-tier auditorium in Britain, is the host venue for Wicked on its latest U.K. and Ireland tour. Merseyside audiences will witness the fateful first meeting of two young witches: feisty, clever Elphaba with her emerald skin and the popular, perky blonde Glinda. Initially rivals, the two form a complex friendship that may or may not weather the challenges that come with one witch being praised as "good" and the other admonished as "bad". Told through soaring song, incredible special effects and top-notch acting, the tale evokes its timeless themes of character and destiny in an unforgettable on-stage spectacle.
