Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines a beguiling 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.

Wicked Executive Producer (UK & Ireland), Michael McCabe, said: “We are proud to be bringing Wicked back to the magnificent Sunderland Empire, where incredible audiences greeted us during two celebrated previous engagements.

“We’re excited to have this opportunity to share once again the spectacle, magic and emotion that has created unforgettable memories for audiences in the North East and all around the world.”

Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre Director, Colin Marr, said: “The runaway hit musical Wicked has wowed audiences all over the world, and, following two previous sold-out visits, we are delighted to welcome this sensationally imaginative and powerful show back to the Edinburgh Playhouse.

“With its themes of acceptance and standing up for good, this untold story of the witches of Oz is the perfect show to celebrate the 2023 festive season.”

VisitScotland Regional Director, Neil Christison, said: “It is fantastic news that Wicked is set to return to the Edinburgh Playhouse offering visitors a West End experience right here in Scotland.

“Attracting hundreds of thousands of theatre goers previously, these productions bring economic benefits to the city and our industry supporting hospitality and accommodation businesses and visitor attractions.

“This news will provide a welcome boost to the ongoing recovery of our industry as we look ahead to 2023.”
