An Olivier Award for Best New Musical ( and choreography ) should pick up the box office. But a thin year for "new" musicals. Top Hat although new to the stage is hardly a new musical really.

Its new to the stage, it is a new musical production that has never been seen before. Its not an award for new original score.

I am very pleased it won the award for best new musical. Sure it was a weak musical year overall but this show is fantastic and should be recognised as such,

He was off on Tuesday & the previous 2 weeks has only managed to do half the shows each week, so you've probably got about a 50/50 chance of seeing him! Apparently he's still not properly got over the illness he had that caused him to miss press night & a bunch of other shows around the end of February. He's on holiday next week & the week after so hopefully the rest will do him good. I still haven't actually seen him perform - not that I mind, I love the u/s Jerry, Alan Burkitt.
