Are the tickets to "Wicked" in London available at the discount ticket booth on the day of the production or is this show too popular such that I should buy before I leave the US? Thank you!
You won't find them at TKTS. In fact, I'd recommend buying them several days in advance. We tried to buy them for an evening show the day of and they were sold out :(
I would suggest that you buy in advance. The website www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk will have links to buy the tickets. If you want to see what seats might be good choices, take a look at www.theatremonkey.com which has info on the various theatres in London.
I saw this show last May and it was a terrific show. It is in a very large theatre and the theatre was packed. I was very glad that I bought tickets in advance.
If you want an idea of what tickets might be available at the TKTS both, check this site
It changes daily, but will give you an idea of what is typically available.
We've used Albemarle of London for many years to pre-order tickets. They will either mail them to you in the US or leave them at your hotel with the concierge.
We will be seeing it this spring. I ordered my tickets directly from Ticketmaster in the UK. They had the seating chart and I've already received my tickets.
