Poppins Defeats Producers In Olivier Nominations
The West End production of the classic Julie Andrews movie has been awarded nine nominations - including Best Actress for its leading lady Laura MICHELLE KELLY - even though it only opened last month (DEC04), to widespread acclaim.
However, rival stage extravaganza The Producers is close behind with eight nominations.
The Producer's stars, Lee Evans and NATHAN LANE - who has since left the show to appear in the Hollywood remake of the movie upon which the show is based - are both competing for Best Musical Actor.
DAME Judi Dench has a Best Supporting Actress nomination for ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, while the play itself is up for the Best Revival gong.
The prize-giving ceremony will take place at the London Hilton Hotel on 20 February (05).21/01/2005 20:10
