Sonia Friedman scores Stage Awards hat-trick

First Published 26 January 2017, Last Updated 27 January 2017

The Stage has today announced the winners of its annual The Stage Awards, with producer Sonia Friedman winning Producer of the Year for the third year in a row.

The Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, Dreamgirls and Funny Girl Producer was also recently crowned the most influential person in theatre in The Stage 100.

Other London-based winners included Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, receiving the International Award, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre scooping the London Theatre of the Year, and pop-up venue King’s Cross Theatre receiving the Theatre Building of the Year Award.

For the full list of winners, please see The Stage Awards website.

At the ceremony, Editor Alistair Smith commended the winners: “Congratulations to all our brilliant winners.

“Our winners range from Sonia Friedman – the West End’s leading producer – to the New Diorama, a fringe theatre that has made a name for itself by supporting and championing emerging talent at the very start of their careers.

“Elsewhere, Sheffield Theatres, one of the UK’s very best theatre complexes, wins our Regional Theatre of the Year for a third time and Matthew Bourne is recognised for taking his unique brand of dance theatre to audiences in Asia.

“The awards also recognised innovation in theatre buildings with an award for the pop-up King’s Cross Theatre. Last, but by no means least, we also recognise one of Theatreland’s unsung heroes – stage door manager Ned Seago, who has become a much-loved fixture at the Old Vic Theatre’s stage door, having worked there for the past three decades.”

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.
