BWW Regional Awards

See The Current Standings In The BroadwayWorld UK Awards; Ian McKellen Leads Best Actor!

Voting continues for the 2018 BroadwayWorld UK Awards, brought to you by BroadwayHD! Nominations were reader-submitted and now our readers get to vote for their favourites.

All professional shows that opened in the UK in the past year were eligible in all categories. The exceptions are the Long-running West End awards (best show, female performer and male performer) - shows nominated in those categories must have opened in the West End by November 2017, and must still be running continuously there. The understudy awards apply to any production - new or long-running.

Theatrical Event of the Year is back for special events that do not fit under the Best Musical/Play categories - theatrical concerts, one night events and other one-offs.

Last year's big winners included Amber Riley, Andrew Scott, Girl from the North Country, Angels in America, Follies, Rent, An American in Paris, and Les Misérables. See the full list here!

Check out the current standings below, and cast your vote...
