Musical fans will be green with envy if they’ve not got a ticket yet, as the hit musical Wicked flies back into the North West.

Telling the untold story of the witches of Oz, the stop-off at The Lowry in Salford is the final run in its record-breaking UK tour.

Running until Saturday, July 25, this is the last chance to see the show outside London. The highly acclaimed national touring production has sold almost 1.5million tickets since its premiere at Manchester’s Palace Theatre in 2013.

Around the world, Wicked has been seen by 47 million people in 13 countries and won 100 international awards.

The original Broadway production remains “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times) after almost 12 years at the Gershwin Theatre. It’s regarded as one of the greatest modern musicals.

Wicked has music and lyrics by multi-Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman, musical staging by Wayne Cilento and is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Olivier Award nominee Joe Mantello. Wicked is based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire.

Wicked runs until Saturday, July 25 at The Lowry, Salford Quays.
