I was thrilled to attend this month’s Olivier Awards with the Songs for Nobodies team – and also with my old friend Richard Gresham in tow. Richard and I decided to run a competition. Who could get the most selfies with lovely theatre friends – industry professionals of all types including producers, publicists, journalists, marketing bods and even a few performers – at this unrivalled Theatreland event? Safe to say I won!
A wonderful night. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees and also the indefatigable organisers, including Julian Bird, Lee Batty and Emma DeSouza, with their army of 400 people onstage and 1200 backstage. And my biggest personal thanks to Rina Gill, RGM Productions and the beautiful Bernadette Robinson.
Oh, and well done to my fabulous team at StageFaves and MyTheatreMates – Lisa Martland leading Perry O’Bree, Holly Mallett, Marika Visser, Peter Jones and Darren Ross – who covered the event so fabulously across those two sites and social media. Doing the actual hard work on the night.
