As it’s nearly Wicked’s 12th Anniversary at the West End, take a peek at the top reasons why we love the show!

1. It gets to the bottom of what REALLY happened to the Wicked Witch of The West (no spoilers, please)

When the two girls realise they actually get on rather well? Adorable!

2. It celebrates female friendship and empowerment. #SquadGoals

3. It shows there’s more to Oz than it being a cat fight destination for some seriously sparkly shoes

Our findings? There’s plenty of parties and celebrations in Oz – it’s a definite party town.

4. It’s not afraid to tackle controversial issues throughout the show

Politics? Sexual issues? Ethical debates? It’s all going down in Oz!

5. It’s adapted from the eponymous 1995 novel, written by Gregory Maguire

Witch (sorry) is also awesome – read it!

6. It’s an international hit
