A week before this year’s event on Sunday 12 April 2015, having been quietly dropped from the media invitation list since leaving WhatsOnStage, I wasn’t planning to get very involved in the furore this year – apart from, of course, watching the highlights on ITV and tweeting and blogging my reactions. Instead, come the day, I found myself in the middle of my own red carpet moment, teetering around in (oh-so-painfully high, super-shiny, patent leather boots) and unintentionally photo-bombing the likes Amanda Abbington with my new best friend, Grimm Tales producer Catherine Botibol (watch out for this lady – more cool theatrical immersion experiences to come). That was thanks to the wonderful Rich Major, who invited me to attend the Oliviers as a guest of See Tickets. Rich is one of those industry mates who have been unendingly kind and supportive to me over the past year – but, even so, a ticket to the Oliviers and after-party, plus hob-knobbing beforehand at the Ivy Club was beyond the call of friend duty. Thanks, Rich. Not just on the red carpet, I also found myself on the airwaves – wearing my MyTheatreMates and Also Recognised Awards hat on, with my co-founder Mark Shenton – talking Oliviers predictions and hugging nominees on the Friday before, and on the box – as “theatre blogger” – talking ceremony highlights, surprise results and Gemma Arterton’s plunging neckline (see my #selfie tweet below with the luminous lady herself) with Eamonn Holmes on television’s Sky News. Here’s my airtime on both, if you want a look or listen…. Until next year!   Sky News [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub02YAfJwtg]   The Curtain Up Show on Resonance FM The Curtain Up Show – 10th April 2015 – Live From the Theatre Cafe by Resonance Fm on Mixcloud   Terri on Twitter Oliviers 2015 // <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); // ]]>
