London Evening Standard announces Theatre Awards longlist

A longlist has been announced by the London Evening Standard ahead of its Theatre Awards featuring some of the top stage names.

James Corden, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law and Kevin Spacey are all in with a chance of winning the Best Actor prize, while Kristin Scott Thomas, Gemma Arterton, Sheridan Smith and Samantha Spiro could claim the Best Actress gong.

Productions which have thrilled fans of London theatre breaks like The Heretic, Tribes and Remembrance Day are all in the list for Best Play.

Furthermore, the Ned Sherrin Award for Best Musical will be contested by the likes of Betty Blue Eyes, Crazy for You, Fela! and Matilda.

The winners will be decided by a host of theatre experts, including Sarah Sands, deputy editor of the London Evening Standard, and critics Georgina Brown, Susannah Clapp, Charles Spencer, Libby Purves and Matt Wolf.

In 2010, Rory Kinnear was named as the Best Actor for his performance in Measure for Measure, while Passion picked up the Ned Sherrin Award for Best Musical.
