2023 was an amazing year for new musicals and revivals alike, with several new productions bursting onto the West End stage. Among these was Standing at the Sky’s Edge, which was the most nominated musical of the season and features an original score by singer-songwriter Richard Hawley. This year also marked the debut of the new musical Tammy Faye, whose music was composed by none other than Sir Elton John! Looking beyond new musicals, a number of much-loved classics were revived too, with Oklahoma becoming one of the most hyped productions of the season. Tickets were so in-demand for its initial run at the Young Vic that it has now transferred to the West End, where it will play an extended run at the Wyndham’s Theatre. As for which of these shows will emerge victorious at the Olivier Awards, here are our predictions!
