HAMILTON was the night's biggest winner at this year's Olivier Awards, taking home seven prizes in total including Best New Musical. But in the performance categories, it split down the middle between men from Hamilton and women from Bob Dylan hit GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY. The National Theatre's revival of FOLLIES also took two awards, including Best Musical Revival.
Could HAMILTON win as many Oliviers as it has Tony Awards? To add to its 11 Tony wins, Lin-Manuel Miranda's blockbuster dominates the Olivier Awards shortlists, announced today, with a record-breaking 13 nominations. Who else has got a shot in the musical categories? Full list of musical contenders and the live announcements, by Elaine Paige and Alexandra Burke, here...
Our #FirstNightTakeover series continues with Perry O'Bree attending the West End opening of GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, which has transferred for a limited season at the Noel Coward Theatre following its lauded world premiere at the Old Vic. Can you name all the celebs Perry spotted on the red carpet? (Hint: They include Hollywood royalty Cate Blanchett!)
As we come to the end of the year, it's time to start celebrating what our #StageFaves have been getting up to this year, and the brilliant guys over at The Curtain Up Show have just announced the nominees for their Album of the Year 2017, in association with TodayTix.
Casting has been announced for the West End transfer of the Old Vic's production of GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, which begins its run at the Noel Coward Theatre in December.

It's been a sell-out at the Old Vic, where it finishes this Saturday, now more theatregoers will have the chance to see Conor McPherson's amazing musical makeover of Bob Dylan classics in GIRL FROM THE COUNTRY. It transfers to the West End for a limited season from 29 December 2017. We've got the new show trailer to remind you just how stunning it is...
Faves founder Terri Paddock has been raving about Conor McPherson's new musical GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, inspired by Bob Dylan songs, and judging by this video of Sheila Atim's performance in the show at the Old Vic Theatre, we can understand why! Have a watch...
What do Bob Dylan and ABBA have in common? Well...they've both got 'jukebox' musicals! Bob Dylan's 1963 song "Girl from the North Country", from his second studio album, provided inspiration for this world premiere new musical (or is it a play with music?) opening at the Old Vic Theatre this July. We've got two fab songs for you from GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY (wonder how they came up with the title?!), sung by the cast, to whet your whistle. It certainly doesn't sound like MAMMA MIA!
Bob Dylan's 1963 song "Girl from the North Country", from his second studio album, provided inspiration for writer-director Conor McPherson for this world premiere new musical (or is it a play with music?) at the Old Vic Theatre. Who'll be singing that and other classic Dylan tracks?
