Throughout its glittering history, the Olivier Awards has played host to some of the world’s finest performers, all vying for the iconic bust of the man himself. Last night Hamilton swept the board with seven wins (from a record-breaking thirteen nominations), including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music. Other big winners of the night included The Ferryman, Follies and, after recently taking Broadway by storm, Angels in America.
With many of the upstagers hailing from professional theatre, TV and film, it’s no surprise that over the years we’ve built up quite the roster of Associate Artists, many of whom are Olivier Award winners themselves.
Two of our long-standing collaborators, Finn Ross and Adam Young, created the Video Design for the Broadway premiere of Frozen the musical. They recently received a well-deserved mention in the New York Times for their work on Tina Fey’s long-awaited musical adaptation of cult-favourite Mean Girls.
Holly James recently appeared in Hamilton, as well as in the West End premieres of American Psycho, The Bodyguard and Hairspray. Choreographer Lynne Page won an Olivier in 2012 for her work on La Cage Aux Folles as well as earning both Tony and Drama Desk nominations. Composer and Musical Director David Shrubsole received a Drama Desk Award for his production of Conversations with Coward.
