Wicked sets new box office records
Wicked was seen by 45,000 people in the UK in the week ending 3 January 2015, grossing £2,160,377.50 at box offices in London and Edinburgh, and breaking its own previous records in both the West End and on its UK & Ireland Tour.
The London production set a new Box Office record at the Apollo Victoria Theatre with nine sell-out shows and a gross of £1,023,819. Its previous record (of £1,002,885 for week ending 1 January 2011) also marked the first time in West End history that any production grossed over £1 million in a single week.
The spectacular UK & Ireland tour grossed £1,136,558.50 at the Edinburgh Playhouse with eight sell-out shows, marking the highest grossing week to date of its entire multi record-breaking tour.
The UK & Ireland tour has already taken £50 million since its premiere in Manchester in September 2013 and will conclude in July 2015 with a return to the Greater Manchester area (to The Lowry in Salford) following upcoming engagements in Plymouth, Bristol, Sunderland and Aberdeen.
