"Sunday" Enjoys Sunday At The Oliviers
The Olivier awards -- the UK equivalent to the Tonys -- were awarded Sunday and the revival of "Sunday In The Park With George" was the big winner, taking five big trophies including best revivial, best actor and best actress. I saw it in London (it was my first time seeing the show live) and it was thoroughly captivating. It comes to Broadway this fall, so buy your tickets early. "Blackbird" -- about child molestation -- comes here in a few weeks and won best play. Tony Kushner's musical "Caroline, Or Change" won best new musical, sweeping the top UK theater awards for his show. And when I go to London in two weeks, I'll definitely check out the witty stage adaptation of "The 39 Steps."
