Did you know that the WhatsOnStage Awards are the only major UK theatre awards decided by the public, with more than 60,000 people voting each year? The awards are produced by WhatsOnStage.com, the place to go for theatre performances in all of the UK, plus unrivaled theatre news, reviews, photos, interviews, gossip, blogs and features.
“Now in their 15th year, the awards are bigger and better than ever, with a ceremony and concert held at the West End’s Prince of Wales Theatre featuring presentation of the prizes alongside star performances, “ says WhatsOnStage spokesperson Rosie Bannister. “As the West End and Broadway divide narrows, and we each welcome more shows both ways across the Atlantic, we look forward to sharing with you our celebration of the year in theatre.”
What can a guest expect at the awards?
The Awards Concert is co-hosted by comedian Mel Giedroyc and sees all the winners collect their prizes, alongside performances from West End stars. This year’s nominees include Tom Hiddleston, Gillian Anderson, David Tennant and Gemma Arterton.
What sets the awards apart?
The WhatsOnStage Awards are the only major theatre awards in which the audience preside over nominations and winners across every category, meaning that theatregoers can show their support for their favourite productions that have opened through the year. Unlike many other awards ceremonies, a majority of our concert tickets are sold to the public.
What’s exciting that’s coming up in the London theatre scene?
Exciting musicals coming to London soon include Carol King musical Beautiful from Broadway and the West End transfer of Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton. We’ve also got the return of The Audience, which will be running simultaneously in London and New York, and a musical version of hit British film Bend it Like Beckham. Looking further ahead, don’t miss Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet at the Barbican later next year.
