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...

On Sunday, the 2019 Olivier Awards ceremony brought together the great and the good of the British Theatre world in one place. As usual, both the ceremony and the red carpet brought us ALL the feels, and some tweeters could only truly explain how they were feeling in gif form...

So the big day has arrived. Olivier Awards rehearsals have been taking place at the Royal Albert Hall, the set is beginning to take shape, all the nominees are picking out their sparkly outfits and the nerves are growing. StageFaves has a look at the build-up on Twitter so far.

It's been a hell of a West End opening for COME FROM AWAY! The Broadway transfer flew into London after a run in Ireland and now it's nominated an astonishing NINE TIMES!!! In case you needed reminding why, Rachel Tucker (who is herself nominated for Best Actress in a supporting role) teamed up with social media star Doug Armstrong for a lovely acoustic medley and a chat about the show...

The 2019 Olivier Awards are fast approaching and we're already super excited. The only problem is, we have to wait until the weekend to know who wins!!! If, like us, waiting is not your forte, here's a cool video to help ease the pangs of desire. Three top theatre professionals chat about all four of the fantastic Olivier Nominates shows in the "Best New Musical" category...

An unexpected hit when it originally opened on Broadway, COME FROM AWAY has flown the coop, finally landing in London's West End. Needless to say, this heartwarming new musical about the triumph of humanity in the face of tremendous evil stole the hearts of UK audiences as much as across the Atlantic. Nominated for a series of the biggest honours at this year's Olivier Awards, fans and critics alike would no doubt love to see it scoop some accolades. See what the critics are saying about it here...

We've got more photos from the year's Olivier Awards. Check out these of your #StageFaves winners in the press room with their trophies and the people who presented them those trophies, care of photographer Pamela Raith.

The rain was never going to deter #StageFaves vlogger Perry O'Bree on the 2018 Olivier Awards red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall. In addition to this year's two-time nominee and all-round legend Imelda Staunton, he also caught up with stars from Hamilton, Everybody's Talking About Jamie and Bat Out Of Hell. See who you can spot!

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.

As the big night looms, there is plenty to enjoy in the final episode of the Olivier Awards’ Facebook series, with appearances from Janie Dee, Elaine Paige and, of course, Perry!

Fancy a look backstage at the preparations for the biggest night in the theatre industry calendar? Then stop right here and spy on Lee Mead and Sheila Atim rehearsing, the Hamilton costumes arriving and who is sitting where at the Royal Albert Hall.

London theatre’s biggest night of the year is this Sunday – West End casts are rehearsing, the set is being built at the Royal Albert Hall and fans are working on their best selfie faces for the Red Carpet…
