LONDON - Despite the current economic climate, the hit musical ‘Wicked’ has claimed a record in ticket sales.
The show, about the loves and lives of two witches in the Land of Oz, took 1,002,885 pounds in a week - the highest in London theatre history, reports the Sky News.
“This is millions of pounds worth of equipment and show,” said Wicked’s executive producer Michael McCabe.
“People are being careful with their money and they’re choosing shows they’ve heard of. They may have had a personal recommendation from a friend but it’s also value for money,” he added.
The show has been running in the West End since 2006. (ANI)
