All very deserved. I was surprised that Love Never Dies didn’t get at least one award after being nominated for so many. It was good to see the Lyric Hammersmith awarded one for Blasted. The fact that the National Theatre and Royal Court dominate should be a wake up call to government that subsidised theatre works and should be supported. There’s a huge amount of exciting work happening over the next 12 months in London and we’ll see what are possible candidates for next years, but I bet the NT and Royal Court will dominate again.
