My Stage is the World

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive

Remember, remember the 7th of November

on September 22, 2014

So a few weeks ago, I sat down with the lovely West End Wilma, a glass of wine and some other reviewers for one of the hardest tasks of the year.

What did we have to do?

West End Wilma Reviewers
Narrow down all of the nominations into a shortlist of four for each category of course!

I can tell you now – it was a lengthy process. Between us we’d seen thousands of shows and trying to whittle down so much talent was almost impossible!

But… we finally managed it and are very excited to have a very strong list of shortlisted people, theatres and productions.

So it’s now over to you, the lovely public. Voting opens on 1st October and runs for two weeks at

Are you ready to fight for your favourites?
