    About The Stage Awards 2020

    The Stage Awards were founded to celebrate major West End theatrical achievements, as well as achievements in fringe and international theatre and next year's ceremony will introduce a new category for Achievement in Technical Theatre. The Young Vic team, which has been nominated for setting up emergency scratch performances of Death of a Salesman within 24 hours after a part of the ceiling collapsed in the Piccadilly Theatre mid-show, will be up against productions that put on two of 2019's most technically complex shows – Anna at the National Theatre and the Sheffield Theatres production of Life of Pi.

    Another notable nominee for the evening includes the recently-unveiled Boulevard Theatre in Soho for Theatre Building of the Year. The innovative Art Deco venue, formerly known as the Raymond Revuebar strip club, has been completely transformed by Soda Architects into a modern theatre with a balcony and Stalls that can rotate, a stage that can shift levels, and a decadent 1920s-esque bar. The hip new theatre is currently running its inaugural season opener, Ghost Quartet.
