Cate Blanchett & Lin-Manuel Miranda to co-host Evening Standard Theatre Awards

First Published 6 October 2017, Last Updated 24 April 2020

Cate Blanchett, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dame Anna Wintour will be co-hosts of the 63rd London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, it has been announced.

The evening will be hosted by the newspaper’s owner Evgeny Lebedev, with American Vogue Editor-in-Chief Wintour, alongside international star Blanchett and Hamilton creator and original star Miranda, named as co-hosts.

Also announced today is the presenter of the 2017 Awards ceremony, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, writer and star of the award-winning play Fleabag, now a hit BBC television series.

Blanchett can currently be seen in Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto, showing at the BFI London Film Festival this October and will appear in Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok next month. In 2018, Blanchett will be featured in the films Where’d You Go Bernadette, Ocean’s 8 and The House With A Clock In Its Wall.

Miranda wrote the music, lyrics and book for Hamilton, the hit hip-hop musical he also starred in on Broadway, about one of America’s Founding Fathers. Hamilton has been the hottest ticket on Broadway, where it won 11 Tony Awards, and an unprecedented 100,000 fans pre-registered for tickets for the London run which begins in December 2017 with the reopening at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

The 2017 Evening Standard Theatre Awards are to take place on Sunday 3 December. The shortlist for the awards will be announced in November.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
