The winners of the 38th Annual Laurence Olivier Award have been announced. The 2014 Laurence Olivier Awards are “presented annually by the Society of London Theatre to recognize excellence in professional theatre. Named after the British actor Laurence Olivier, they are given for West End shows and other productions staged in London. The Olivier Awards are recognized internationally as the highest honour in British theatre and are considered to be the theatre industry equivalent of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for television and film; in terms of theatre, they are the British equivalent of Broadway’s Tony Awards and France’s Molière Award.”
