WhatsOnStage Awards – Winners Announced

WhatsOnStage Awards

This evening WhatsOnStage hosted their 16th annual awards at the Prince of Wales theatre celebrating theatres best and finest as voted for by the theatre-going public.

I was delighted to attend and host Steve Furst did a cracking job of presenting the glittering awards. We were treated to performances from Jenna Russell who took to the stage with the knockout song “The Revolutionary Costume For Today” from the sell-out musical Grey Gardens, also Pixie Lott performed a beautiful acoustic version of “Moon River” from the upcoming Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
