The 2019 Olivier Awards may be over, but this year's categories were so strong they will never be forgotten! Amongst loads of cool photos and tidbits to get us all excited, the team also launched a "Road to the Oliviers" segment. Here are all the videos featuring Musical Theatre shows and stars...
Last night was the biggest in British Theatre! The Olivier Awards celebrated the best of all things stagey and we reckon this was the best year yet. As all your favourite musical theatre stars arrived on the Red Carpet, StageFaves’ awesome vlogger Perry O’Bree was ready to chat with all the nominees and guests, while at the same time Twitter was flooded with photos. Here are our personal faves...
After much-anticipation actors Sheila Atim and Giles Terera announced the nominations for the Olivier Awards 2019 today and it wasn’t long before the celebrations began for two West End musicals in particular. The acclaimed gender-bending revival of Sondheim’s Company and powerful Canadian show Come From Away are recognised in nine categories each. The King and I and the Queens of Six The Musical are close behind with six and five nominations respectively. Who do you think will come out top on the night?
Phone rings, door chimes, in come the 2018 West End cast recording of Company. In the same week as Marianne Elliott’s groundbreaking production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s legendary musical comedy triumphed at the Critics’ Circle Awards, the digital download and streaming release has been made available and the fans can’t wait!
In yet another twist for the much-anticipated production of the Sondheim and George Furth classic, opening at the West End’s Gielgud Theatre from 26 September 2018, Jonathan Bailey will play Jamie (originally written as Amy) and Alex Gaumond is his devoted boyfriend. But don’t worry, the song ‘Not Getting Married’ today remains!
This week we were given an exciting sneak peek into rehearsals for the tour of A SPOONFUL OF SHERMAN! And we enjoyed it so much we thought we’d check out what was happening in some other rehearsal rooms! Thanks to our #StageFaves for sharing! Here are our top 10 rehearsal tweets…
By the press statements released, sounds like something went awry in negotiations... Blame the agent? Whatever the reason that Jimmy Nail is no longer appearing in the UK premiere of THE LAST SHIP, we think it's pretty cool that Joe McGann and Richard Fleeshman are onboard. Have you seen who else is in the cast for Sting's debut musical, opening in Newcastle in March?
Our #FirstNightTakeover series continues with Perry O'Bree attending the official world premiere (on 20 June 2017) of BAT OUT OF HELL at the London Coliseum. Which rock 'n' roll celebrities did he meet on the red carpet and at the after-party? (Here's a hint. The names include: McFly's Tom Fletcher, Craig Revel Horwood, Steps' Lisa Scott Lee and Faye Tozer, Arlene Phillips, Richard Fleeshman, Nathan Amzi and, well, tons of the cast and creatives!)
