In addition they only work with trusted local partners to provide an exclusive range of additional products, including Afternoon Tea packages, fantastic group dining deals, pre-show receptions, and official workshop experiences.

Lee Stupple said: “I’m delighted to be joining Wicked Direct and to being part of its fantastic success and continued growth. The stage production of Wicked is a world-class product, which is not only relatable to worldwide audiences but accessible to them thanks in no small part to the collaboration the show has with  travel and tourism trade. I’m looking forward to supporting the team and cultivating new and mutually beneficial partnerships and relationships on behalf of the show.”

Michael McCabe, Executive Producer of Wicked in the UK said: “Since opening in 2006, Wicked has become synonymous with all that is great about the capital’s cultural and visitor landscape.

We’re now delighted to welcome Lee Stupple to our expanding operation.”
