The Wind In The Willows at the Duchess Theatre Winner
The Royal Opera House’s hugely successful dance show transferred to the West End in its 10th anniversary year. Directed and choreographed by Will Tuckett, its inventive staging and Toby Olié’s striking puppetry transported audiences to the storybook riverbank.
Derren Brown: Infamous at the Palace Theatre
Andy Nyman and Derren Brown joined forces to create Brown’s most personal and minimalist show yet. Packed with mind control and psychological illusion, charismatic showman Brown continued to put audiences under his spell. A win would mark Brown’s third Olivier Award.
Eat, Pray, Laugh! at the London Palladium

Eric And Little Ern at the Vaudeville Theatre
Jonty Stephens and Ian Ashpitel brought one of Britain’s most iconic double acts to life in this funny and heart-warming show that brought just as much laughter to the West End as the real-life duo did to our television screens.
