olivier awards 208 todaytixThe 2019 Olivier Awards took place on Sunday night at the Royal Albert Hall, and “The Inheritance,” “Come From Away” and “Company” led the pack with four wins apiece. “The Inheritance” won Best New Play. “Come From Away” took home the award for Best New Musical, while “Company” dominated the supporting role in a musical categories.

“The Inheritance” playwright Matthew Lopez, said he was “overwhelmed and overjoyed” at the win for his seven-hour epic set in New York City.

Broadway star Patti LuPone thanked the London theatre community through tears as she accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for “Company.”  Earlier in the day the star posted a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of her pre-ceremony ritual, featuring eye masks and #carbloading.

London stage veterans Sharon D. Clarke and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith took home the gongs for Best Actress and Best Actor in a Musical, for “Caroline, or Change” and “Tina”.
