2012 Awards


The 2012 award season was dominated by new musicals on both sides of the Atlantic. Matilda the Musical took home the most awards at the Olivier Awards, including a three way tie between the leading ladies, whilst Once the Musical swept the board at the Tony’s. Despite the best efforts of the Society of London Theatre, the Olivier Awards ceremony lacked a certain sparkle, and the outdoor entertainment left a lot to be desired. In New York Neil Patrick Harris once again hosted a star studded ceremony including an opening number that imagined having Patti LuPone as your next door neighbour. Imagine.
