London, UK — The revival of A Chorus Line at the world famous London Palladium has received nominations for Best Musical Revival and Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for Leigh Zimmerman (Sheila) in this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards. The winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony which will take place at the Royal Opera House on Sunday 28 April 2013.
Producer André Ptaszynski said:
“Really Useful Theatres are delighted with the quality and critical response to this important revival of A Chorus Line. We are committed to the show running at the London Palladium into early 2014 and maybe beyond.”
A Chorus Line remains one of the hottest tickets in town as the Leicester Square ticket office confirmed that Michael Bennett’s award‐winning production broke the record for the highest number of tickets sold for a single performance on Saturday night.
For the first time since its first London season, which opened in 1976 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical, a full London revival of the Broadway Production began previews at the London Palladium on February 5th 2013, and opened to rave reviews on Tuesday February 19th.
