Olivier Awards 2018: ‘Hamilton’ Dominates Winners List With Seven Gongs

🏆🏆🏆

‘Hamilton’ was the big winner at Sunday (8 April) night’s Olivier Awards, as the hip-hop musical took home seven gongs.

The production, which opened in the West End in December 2017, triumphed in categories including the Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical and Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical.

Composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda and orchestrator Alex Lacamoire were also awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Music accolade.

Sadly, ‘Hamilton’ missed out on breaking the record for the most Olivier Award wins for one production, and that title remains safely in the hands of ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ and ‘Hairspray’, who previously won 11 each.
