Date Posted: 27/03/13
Hit play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time leads this year's Olivier Awards nominations, with the National Theatre production in the running for eight prizes
The categories in which the play is nominated include best new play, best director for Marianne Elliot and best actor for Luke Treadaway's lead performance.
Based on Mark Haddon's best-selling 2003 novel, the stage version of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been wowing those on London theatre breaks since opening at the National Theatre in August last year.
Meanwhile, new stage musical Top Hat is also among the front-runners for this year's Olivier Awards with seven nominations, while the West End transfer of Chichester Festival Theatre's Sweeney Todd is up for prizes in six categories.
Mark Rubinstein, president of the Society of London Theatre, said: "Congratulations to all of this year's Olivier Award nominees whose incredible talents contributed to a record-breaking year for London theatre."
