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...
First off, the nominees get a chance to celebrate the fact they were nominated in the first place! Episode 1 of 10 in the #RoadToTheOliviers segment is from the little shindig called the nomination celebration!
We've already seen this one, but it's worth watching again! A super-panel of musical theatre aficionados (Ann Treneman, Paul Taylor Mills and Susie McKenna) chatted about all four of the nominees for Best New Musical and gave their personal take on who they think should win.
Next let's fly over to episode 3 which takes us all the way to Gander, Newfoundland. Alan Berry, the Musical Director of COME FROM AWAY gave us a sneak peek into the band area. Our favourite bit is the instrument that's genuinely made from bottle caps and an old wellington boot!
Let's keep this thread rollin' with the next video! Adrienne Warren and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (both nominated for Oliviers) from TINA THE MUSICAL (ALSO nominated!) chatted about the privilege of getting to tell the story of such an icon!
Onto COMPANY, which like COME FROM AWAY and The Inheritance (but that's a play soooooo...) took home a host of awards. Stars Patti LuPone, Jonathan Bailey, Richard Fleeshman and leading lady Rosalie Craig talked about this reimagining of the Sondheim classic...
And it wouldn't be right without our final, and sixth video, being with the lovely ladies of SIX! This British phenomenon went from University production at the Edinburgh Fringe to a run at the Arts Theatre (which seems like it's never going to end!!) and beyond.
The six Queens talk about the concept of the show and how excited they are that it continues to do so well!
