Wicked extends run in London's West End to November 2021
| By Nicholas Ephram Ryan Daniels
The wonderful London production of Wicked has announced that the show will be dancing through life until late 2021, thank goodness! The popular West End musical is still on sale and currently booking at the Apollo Victoria Theatre from Monday, 2 November 2020 onwards with tickets from £27 and up.
Wicked extends until 27 November 2021, performances confirmed as cancelled up to and including 31 October 2020
In line with UK Government advice on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2), the West End production of Wicked has cancelled its performances up to and including Halloween this year. But the good news is that the show, as of now, plans to open back up on 2 November 2020 and continue its streak as the 13th longest-running West End show.
Nevertheless, suspensions of the show's performance are being processed on a rolling basis. With the UK Government now allowing outdoor performances and with specific dates for reopening theatres now slowly coming together, it looks like answers will come very soon.
