Booking & Theatre Info For Wicked The Musical
Performances of Wicked the Musical are at the Apollo Victoria Theatre which has two levels. Premium seats in the theatre can be found in the centre section at the front of the Stalls however due to the size of the theatre and the fact that there are very few seats that feature restrictions to the view of the stage there is often a lot of scope to find value in the ticket price by studying the seating plan in detail prior to your purchase. Seats in row Q of the Stalls are exceptionally good value due to a corridor which guarantees a clear view of the stage and there is further value to be found in the slightly off centre seats in the Circle. The rear sections of both the Circle and Stalls offer clear views of the stage for patrons looking to book cheap Wicked tickets however it should be noted that these are situated quite far back from the stage. Bargain hunters looking to secure discounts and special offers for Wicked should check our Discount Theatre Tickets page regularly for news and information about the latest deals. Patrons searching for last minute tickets to shows when no special offers are available should look to book in off peak periods such as midweek matinee performances as well as quiet periods in the West End where they can possibly take advantage of dynamic pricing from the theatre to add value to their purchase.
