Playlist: Songs from Olivier Awards 2019 nominees

What a year it’s been for the musicals of London and the West End. Just look at the nominees list for the Olivier Awards 2019 with Mastercard: a brilliant and eclectic mix of world-class musicals on the London scene.

While we’re eagerly anticipating the ceremony this Sunday (7 April) at the Royal Albert Hall – which you can follow along with through OfficialLondonTheatre.com – we’ve been spending our days reminiscing about some of the past year’s best sounds. Just take the Mastercard Best New Musical and Magic Radio Best Musical Revival nominees: their soundtracks comprise folk, pop, jazz, classical musical theatre – and so much more.

So to get suitably excited for the big event, we’ve put together this Spotify playlist of some of our favourite songs which appear in these categories. Plug your headphones in, turn the volume up, and lose yourself in the sounds of these Olivier Award-nominated shows.

Please note that recordings of songs from Come From Away and Fun Home have been sourced from their respective Original Broadway Cast recordings. The King And I soundtrack originates from the same production’s 2015 Broadway run (with a slightly different cast).

There are no songs from Caroline, Or Change, which was nominated for Magic Radio Best Musical Revival, available on Spotify in the United Kingdom; they are included in the playlist for external users, and have been sourced from the Original Broadway Cast Recording. You can find out more about Caroline, Or Change here.

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.
