2011 Olivier Awards
As 'Wicked' won the Audience Award for Most Popular Show at last years Oliviers they can not be nominated again for 2011. However what that does mean is that they get to present the award instead and that honour goes to our very own Rachel.
The show takes place at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Sunday 13 March 2011 starting at 5:30pm.
If like me you're not lucky enough to have tickets to this special event you can listen to it on Radio 2 or watch the whole event on your digital TV by using the BBC Red Button service on the night.
Showbiz stars who will be presenting awards include:
* Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, current stars on Frankenstein
* Anne-Marie Duff, star of the Old Vic’s Cause Celebre
* Elisabeth Moss (Peggy from Mad Men), currently appearing in The Children’s Hour at the Comedy Theatre
* Actor Rupert Everett
* The League of Gentlemen and the National’s Season’s Greetings star Mark Gatiss
* Amanda Holden from Shrek The Musical
