Thursday 2nd May 2024

April marked the Olivier Awards, celebrating the very best of London theatre! It was a remarkable ceremony featuring the most talented actors, directors, and playwrights of the West End. Guided by charming host Hannah Waddingham, the star-studded night was filled with a plethora of unforgettable moments.

The night’s ceremony was dominated by the recent revival of Sunset Boulevard, which earned an impressive seven awards. This tied the record for the most awards ever received by a musical, joining the likes of Cabaret and Hamilton. The production won the coveted prize of Best Musical Revival and numerous creative awards. It also received Best Actor and Best Actress, with Nicole Scherzinger rewarded for a spectacular turn as silent film actress Norma Desmond.  

Dear England, James Graham’s striking drama about England football manager Gareth Southgate earned the prize for Best New Play. This production was widely acclaimed, earning praise for its ability to captivate audiences who are not usually drawn to theatre. As for Best New Musical, this honour was given to the hit show Operation Mincemeat. This side-splitting musical took London by storm when it first opened in 2023 and continues to play to sold-out audiences. 

Many of these award-winning productions continue to delight audiences – grab your tickets below to experience the magic first-hand!
