Theatre Quiz: Name the Best New Musical Olivier Award winners

By Hira Desai First Published 5 April 2019, Last Updated 2 April 2020

As you all know, the Olivier Awards are Britain’s most prestigious stage honours and winning the Mastercard Best New Musical Olivier Award is the sort of triumph which lives long in the memory – but how far back can you recall the winners?

You’ve 8 minutes on the clock – and just the names of the winning shows’ fellow category nominees, and a cryptic clue, to go off.

Let’s take 2019 for an example. We’ve got; Fun Home, Six, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical and your cryptic clue is: ‘the kindest show around’… Did you guess it? It’s the record-breaking Come From Away!

Love a little competition? Why not share the game with your theatre-loving friends and see who can score the highest! The winner gets to choose the next show you’ll see once the theatres reopen, or if you’re able to support the industry at this challenging time, the loser could treat the winner to Theatre Tokens which have absolutely no expiry date! 

Good luck! And as always, let us know how you did on Facebook and Twitter!
