WICKED, the record-breaking West End musical now in its 7th smash hit year at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, is pleased to release the first pictures of Louise Dearman as Elphaba, who will play her first performance tonight (29 October 2012).

Wicked is already the 16th longest-running West End musical of all time* and recently celebrated its landmark 2500th performance (8 September 2012) and 6th Birthday (27 September 2012). The Olivier and Evening Standard Awardwinning
London production has been seen by almost 5 million theatregoers since its West End premiere in 2006.
 
Wicked has music and lyrics by multi GRAMMY and Academy® Award winner Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman and is directed by two-time Tony® Award winner and Olivier Award nominee Joe Mantello. Wicked is based on the best-selling novel, ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’, by Gregory Maguire.
