BWW:UK AWARDS 2011: Voting Update - THE WIZARD OF OZ And MUCH ADO Lead The Pack!

Voting in the 2011 BWW:UK Awards has been open for over a week now - and The Wizard of Oz and Much Ado About Nothing are leading the pack for the big prizes!

Betty Blue Eyes is pushing the Palladium's spectacular hard in the musicals categories, though, and the National's much-acclaimed Frankenstein may yet overtake the Josie Rourke-directed Shakespeare revival.

Les Miserables is still as popular as ever, leading the running for best long-running musical, and Phantom of the Opera currently tops the voting for Theatrical Event of the Year with its 25th Anniversary celebrations.

You have until November 30th to have your say!
