The organisers of the Olivier Awards have announced that the 2014 awards will be held on Sunday April 13, 2014. The event will be held at London’s Royal Opera House for the third year.
The awards ceremony, which is London Theatreland’s equivalent of the Tony Awards, celebrate the best of British theatre, and any show opening up to February 24th 2014 will be eligible. I am already anticipating that The Book of Mormon will have a strong presence in the nominations for the 2014 event.
There is a new category for the 2014 awards: “Outstanding Achievement In Music.” This new award recognizes the composition of original music for plays, orchestration, and musical supervision/direction. It will be interesting to see who gains a nomination in that category, although I would say that Tim Minchin would be a strong contender for his amazing work on Matilda.
There isn’t a lot more to know right now, but I for one will be eagerly waiting for any news and can’t wait to see the stars on the Red Carpet again next year.
