2013 Awards


The 2013 award season saw a number of high profile shows battle for the top crown. On Broadway the race was firmly set between Kinky Boots and Matilda, turning into a war between the UK and USA. When your show has Broadway Dahhhrling Harvey Fierstein attached, there really is no competition, and sadly Kinky Boots took home most of the prizes, despite having the worst British accents heard since Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Over in London it was a poor year for new musicals, but revivals scored well and Olivier Award hosts Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball took home the top gongs for ‘Sweeney Todd’.
