Much Ado About Nothing starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate at Wyndham's Theatre won Best Shakespeare Production - and Theatre Event of the Year - at the Whatsonstage.com Awards last night (19 Feb).
There was success for another unlikely fictional couple as Driving Miss Daisy won Best Play Revival (and Best Actress in a Play for Vanessa Redgrave).
Best Regional Production went to Sweeney Todd (Chichester Festival Theatre, soon to transfer to the West End's Adelphi Theatre), while Alecky Blythe and Adam Cork's groundbreaking musical, London Road, won Best Ensemble Performance.
Congratulations to all!
NHB playwright Dawn King was named Most Promising New Playwright at the Off West End Theatre Awards today (5th Feb) for her play Foxfinder, which premiered at the Finborough Theatre in December last year after it won the Papatango New Writing Competition. Congratulations, Dawn!
