2020 Olivier Award winners revealed!
Noted choreographer Matthew Bourne took home his sixth Olivier Award of all time last night for his work on Mary Poppins The Musical alongside Stephen Mear. Bourne has now been awarded more Olivier Awards than any other person. The staged Disney musical also won Best Set Design for Bob Crowley.
In the musical and acting categories, Miriam-Teak Lee notably picked up a win for her titular role in & Juliet while Andrew Scott and Sharon D Clarke took home awards for their acclaimed performances in Present Laughter and Death of a Salesman respectively.
Lee's co-stars in & Juliet also didn't leave empty-handed, picking up top prizes for their best-supporting roles in the production, which is set to recommence performances at the Shaftesbury Theatre as soon as it becomes possible.
Lee was one of three performers who won awards for & Juliet, with her co-stars David Bedella and Cassidy Janson also picking up prizes for best supporting turns in the show, which will recommence its run at the Shaftesbury Theatre once feasible.
