BWW Previews: The London Stage, April 2014
It's April, and in Theatreland that means it's Oliviers time!
This year's glittering glamorous extravaganza is to be held at the Royal Opera House on Sunday 13th April, with a party in the Covent Garden Piazza running simultaneously.
Bad news if you want to follow it, though - there's no live broadcast on TV or radio, and it's not being streamed online either. (Log on to BWW:UK on the night and we'll have all the latest, plus snaps and reaction as soon as we have it!)
Folk up for awards include Jude Law and Tom Hiddleston for Best Actor, and Dame Judi Dench for Best Actress; and shows nominated include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Book of Mormon, Once and The Scottsboro Boys.
Elsewhere in the West End, Let The Right One In is settled now at the Apollo Theatre after last year's ceiling collapse; and also on Shaftesbury Avenue, fans of stepladders and motorbikes are gleefully awaiting the return of Cool Rider (Duchess Theatre), the stage adaptation of Grease 2.
Further afield, Zoe Wanamaker stars in the title role of Stevie, at the Chichester Festival, an exploration of the life of poet Stevie Smith.
We're also looking forward to the new UK tour of Avenue Q, which we'll be reviewing at the Greenwich Theatre later in the month. Exciting times. Keep an eye on BWW:UK for all the latest!
