The announcements will be made by Olivier Award winners from the last two years: Nigel Harman, who is now starring in I Can’t Sing! at the London Palladium and won for Shrek the Musical; and Leigh Zimmerman, about to open in Noel Coward's Relative Values at the Harold Pinter Theatre and won for A Chorus Line.
There will also be an exclusive performance from Billy Elliot The Musical, winner of last year’s BBC R2 Audience Award.
The Olivier Awards 2014 will be held April 13 at London's Royal Opera House. On the night, the Society of London Theatre is partnering with VisitBritain and London & Partners on a live screening of the awards for an invited audience at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
