Commentaires : The London show was tailored slightly for a British audience, with some changes in dialogue, choreography, and special effects. The London production celebrated its fifth anniversary on September 27th 2011 with a special curtain call featuring former West End cast members. After Idina Menzel's three-month run she was replaced by Kerry Ellis.
Other Elphabas have included Alexia Khadime and Rachel Tucker; with Dianne Pilkington and Louise Dearman as Glindas; and Oliver Tompsett, Lewis Bradley, Lee Mead (Fiyeros), and Desmond Barrit, Sam Kelly, Clive Carter (Wizards). In both New York and London the show initially received mixed reviews, but it seems to be a critic-proof show, and has had a phenomenal world-wide box office success.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH du THE EVENING STANDARD: "Remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises and sensations. Wicked works like a dream."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT: "I enjoyed very little...The songs sound like dozens you've heard before. The acting is, by and large, appalling. "
MICHAEL BILLINGTON du THE GUARDIAN: "Efficient, knowing and highly professional but more like a piece of industrial product than something that genuinely touches the heart or mind."
CHARLES SPENCER du THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: "Witty, enjoyable...No one could accuse Wicked of being a great musical – indeed at times it's a bit of a mess - but it proves far more enjoyable than I had dared to hope"
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE du THE TIMES: "Songs bang out, along with iffy lyrics and not-so-witty dialogue…I’d rather see The Wizard of Oz 20 times than this ersatz show once."
