Cousins meeting for the first time in ten years become Wicked's 10 millionth visitors

The cast of Wicked celebrate 10 million visitors at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.

LAST night (Wednesday, October 9, 2019) Wicked welcomed its 10 millionth visitor at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre. Geeta Ozdural from London, together with her cousin Lopa Shah from New Jersey (who were seeing each other for the first time in ten years), celebrated with the cast after the performance.

The production, which is already the 9th longest running West End musical of all time (and the 13th longest running West End show of all time), will play its landmark 5500th performance this Monday (October 14, 2019).

Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of Wicked said: “Audiences have passionately engaged with the story, music and characters of Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s remarkable musical since our London premiere in 2006 and their word-of-mouth continues to propel its enduring success. We are all grateful and proud that an incredible 10 million people have already experienced the many wonders of Wicked at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre”.

Seven extra shows have been added this Christmas: Monday, December 23 at 2.30pm; Friday, December 27 at 2.30pm; Sunday, December 29 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm; Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 2.30pm; Thursday, January 2 at 2.30pm; and Friday, January 3, 2020 at 2.30pm. Tickets are now on sale.

Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
