“so dull and boring”

Written on: 31/12/2013

For my daughter of seven and myself the whole story line is boring, most of the story telling can't be heard well.The only thing what good have a plus is the decor. But in whole the show is boring from beginning to the end because their is no excitement in the storyline… Read Full Review

“Very boring, disappointing, poor story”

Written on: 30/04/2013

My husband and I have just came back from Wicked musical. It was a gift for my birthday. I must say that sadly we are very disappointed with the show. It was extremely boring, poor story which made no sense, noisy singing, songs not catchy at all, average dancing. The plot was boring. It was not funny either. We wanted to leave at the interval, but decided to stay and give a second chance. Unfortunately, the second half was not better at all. I almost slept at the end. The only interesting… Read Full Review

thoroughly agree I had to force myself to sit there until the end as the cost was not cheap for poor quality singers, poor tunes and lyrics and this was only yesterday so I hope this has not put me off live theatre.

“boring”

Written on: 22/03/2013

A terrible experience. A very poor script, scenery was dull and unimaginative. Voices were not distinct. Wanted to leave at the interval but thought it might improve. It didn't, it was dull and boring throughout… Read Full Review

“Dull music, dull script, dull dancing”

Written on: 21/02/2013

I went with my husband and three teenage daughters as a family treat as the girls had been wanting to see it for some time. I have been to many of the west end shows, love musicals and usually get totally emotionally involved with them. Unfortunately, 'Wicked' didn't engage my husband, my 18 year old daughter or myself at all. We found the songs extremely dull, tuneless and unmoving - perhaps because the script didn't allow the characters to become emotionally convincing. I was so bored, I… Read Full Review

“Boring - Boring - Boring”

Written on: 19/08/2012 by Grumpyjill (1 review written)

Went with my daughter for a 'treat' - I am in my fifties and my daughter is in her twenties. We were so disappointed by lack of storyline, no variation in the music - two soprano voices belting out dull dull songs - we left during the interval. The special effects were impressive but could not merit us staying any longer… Read Full Review

“Wicked..Yes!”

Written on: 04/05/2012 by magic-Andy (1 review written)

I have now seen this show 3 times and each time it has been brilliant. The cast and scenery make this a fantastic show, a show which caters for the whole family. Matt Willis was in the latest show I show but have to admit he has not been as good as his predecessors. However Rachel Tucker- has an amazing voice and stage prescence and its worth seeing the show just for her. The theatre is very close to Victoria underground station. Prices are reasonable if you hunt down the bargains. I would… Read Full Review

“IT CAST ME UNDER A SPELL!”

Written on: 17/04/2012

Wicked is one of the best musicals I have ever scene! All the costume, music and scenery is fantastic! After it had finished, I was singing along to all the songs and buying the FULL soundtrack! It's obsessive! Wicked is exciting and mind-blowing! Anyone can see it! It's about the 2 witches from the 'Wizard of Oz', Glinda and Elphaba,Rachel Tucker (Elphaba) was AMAZING! Her voice and acting skills are well....WICKED! It's a must see production! The music was perfect for every drama. The scenery… Read Full Review

“Very very dull and boring”

Written on: 29/03/2012

The worst show I have ever had to sit through. We were very tempted not to go back to our seats after the interval. Theatre was only 2/3 full and there were large parties of school children which shows that they must be selling the seats off cheaply so we feel very ripped off at having paid £80 plus per seat for our pre booked seats. Has put us off London theatre for a while, very very bad value for money not a pleasant evening out… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Outstaning - humerous, entertaining and fun!”

Written on: 22/03/2012

Whilst visiting the city of New York on February 16th, I watched the Broadway Company’s version of the prequel to the Wizard of Oz. The show was called Wicked; the lead character, the witch (Elphaba), is played by Donna Vivino. Donna Vivino is an actress who has played roles in the Broadway productions of: Hairspray, Martin Short: Fame Becomes me, Saturday Night Fever, and the original Young Cosette in Les Miserbles. She was a fantastic actress. The play is not in chronological order as it… Read Full Review

“Dull and Boring”

Written on: 08/02/2012 by plotland (1 review written)

The worst musical I've ever seen, I feel very sorry for the cast because the main problem is a very poor script and abysmal songs. The whole production is clunky and awkward, to be honest I've seen better productions at provincial theatre pantomimes, this is not the quality you expect from a major London theatre. My wife and I saw the new Wizard of Oz production in London late last year and it's in a completely different league to this show. We were not alone in our opinion, half the group on… Read Full Review

“Very wicked!!!”

Written on: 05/02/2012 by Aaronaaa (1 review written)

Wicked is by far the best thing in the west end now, it's the best for sets, costumes and pure magic. It is worth every penny and gives inspiration to all who see it, the story is great and I can't see why some people dislike it. The current cast are great and each time I go they have made a little change which makes a big diffrence. Some may think it's too loud and not good quality dining but I disagree, once you know the story and it's meaning you will be changed 'for good' you don't have to… Read Full Review

“Loud yet Dull uninspiring, over rated by a long way”

Written on: 30/10/2011

The only good thing about Wicked is the theatre location and its ease to get to. It is only a stones throw from Victoria tube, so is Billy Elliot which we have already seen and thoroughly enjoyed. Wicked starts of with what could only be described as a tuneless mob all trying to out sing each other, it doesn't get much better through the show. The dialogue is hard to hear yet the singing deafens you. I hate to admit it but I actually nodded off through the show. I did not like to mention it to… Read Full Review

If anyone were to see Mamma Mia instead of Wicked! it would be a waste of time and money.

one of the best musicals i have EVER seen. the acting was fantastic, singing was truely out of this world and it just draws you and you forget where you are. louise dearman was not performing the day i saw it so chloe taylor was standing in for the role of glinda and she really pulled off the role in her own unique way. definatly worth the money i paid not just for the ticket but to travel all the way to london just to go and see it and i would love to see it again… Read Full Review

I thought wicked was ok, not the best musical i have seen! My friend thought the same as me. I found it quiet slow and boring. The Make up

i would enjoy it more. The singing was amazing, but not catchy songs… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2011

AMAZING! This is a must-see, no doubt! Wicked was a fun, thrilling, and remarkable adventure. This play may be just a bit confusing for children under the age of 7 or 8, but it shouldn't matter, because they will be caught up in all the intense, fun, fast-paced rhythm of the extraordinary music incorporated in the show. Don't miss this show, because Wicked is without a doubt wicked!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2011

I found this show very disappointing it was too long, painfully slow and I couldnt wait for it to end. The story line was very weak and I found it a bore. However the acting was good in parts and the costumes and scenery were imaginative and colourful. The theatre was packed and there were many people there that clearly did enjoy it. Maybe it was just me!… Read Full Review
