The 2017 Olivier Awards were held this evening in London with Harry Potter And The Cursed Child conjuring a record-breaking nine wins including Best New Play. Coming into tonight, it was already the most-nominated new play in Olivier history with 11 total. Its nine trophies see Cursed Child overtake Matilda and The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time as the most decorated production ever.

Among the nods it received were for Jamie Parker (Harry Potter) as Best Actor; Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger) as Best Actress; and Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy) as Best Actor in a Supporting Role. The story picks up 19 years after the great battle at the climax of the last Harry Potter book, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. Jack Thorne’s script is based on an original story by Thorne, John Tiffany and Harry Potter author JK Rowling. Tiffany won tonight’s Olivier for Best Director.

The London smash, which hails from Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender’s Playground Entertainment and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions, moves into Broadway’s Lyric Theatre in 2018.

In other wins, The Young Vic’s production of Yerma, was named Best Revival with Billie Piper snatching her first Olivier for Best Actress.

In the musical categories, Groundhog Day, written by Tim Minchin and Danny Rubin, was named Best New Musical. The production, which is currently in previews on Broadway, also received the award for Best Actor in a Musical for Andy Karl. Amber Riley was named Best Actress in a Musical for Dreamgirls. Jesus Christ Superstar won Best Musical Revival.

Kenneth Branagh was this year’s recipient of the Special Award in recognition of his outstanding contribution to British theatre. It was presented by Mark Rylance who was joined on stage by 60 of the actors who appeared in the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s Plays at The Garrick season.

The ceremony, which took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall, will be broadcast at 8PM local on ITV on April 11 with viewers outside the UK able to stream the proceedings at the same time via Facebook, and YouKu in China.
