Our favourite reactions from The Olivier Awards 2019 with Mastercard

Eleni Cashell

The Olivier Awards with Mastercard is usually a whole host of emotions. From the disbelief and happiness from winners, and nerves of every nominee, to the sheer delight on our red carpet presenter’s faces when they see how stunning everyone looks, all the feels are happening that night.

And the emotions aren’t just kept to the Royal Albert Hall, the audience at home also showed their thoughts, feelings and reactions to the evenings’ celebrations. Here are some of our favourites.

The Tom Hiddleston effect

Tom Hiddleston came to the Olivier Awards with his Betrayal co-stars, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox to present an award. And it would be an understatement to say that people were VERY excited about it…

The parent-like pride from the shows

One thing that became evident during the Oliviers was how darn proud the shows were of their nominated cast members. Come From Away in particular went to a huge effort to support their nominees. From shout-outs from Come From Aways in other countries to publishing the sort of tweet your parents would definitely send when they’re proud of you, Come From Away were showing the pride and love throughout the night.

Love for the hosts

We love our host, presenters, and of course, our lovely voiceover for the evening, Zoe Wanamaker. And it seems like you loved them too!

Speech highlights

There were some absolutely cracking speeches at the Olivier Awards. From Patsy Ferran starting off her speech with simply an introduction to herself, to Jonathan Bailey’s heartfelt message to the LGBTQ community, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. And it seems like a lot of the audience loved the speeches too!

Praise for the performances

There were incredible performances from the nominated musicals this year (Caroline, Or Change; Come From AwayCompany; Fun Home; The King And I; Six; and Tina – The Tina Turner Musical) as well as an unforgettable opening number from Disney’s The Lion King, to celebrate their 20th year in the West End. And it seems like you agree that these shows knocked it out of the park with their performances!

Love for the theatre

The Olivier Awards are the perfect excuse to take a look back at the last 12 months of theatre and reflect on how awesome it was. And it seems people on social media were keen to express how much they love both the theatre and the sense of community it brings them.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

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.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
