Theatre 2015Started in May 2015, London is MyTheatre’s youngest branch. We have only six months and sixty-three reviews under our belt yet, even without a full year to cover, there’s been so much going on in London since May that we had plenty to choose from when it came time to join the My Entertainment World awards season. 63 reviews have given way to five categories: Best Director, Best Original Work, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Set Design.

I would like to thank my team for their work in these six months. Thank you Adam and Jordan for covering shows despite holding full-time jobs; thank you for also having the musical theatre knowledge to cover a large element of the London scene that I omit from my coverage. Thank you also to Caroline for joining the team in the later months and for reviewing a wide range of works from companies that had not been covered before.

Be sure to check out our nominations for the MyTV Awards, MyCinema Awards and MyTheatre Awards in TorontoBoston and New York and don’t forget to submit your votes for Fan Favourite in the comment section below, on Facebook and on Twitter using the hashtag #MyTheatreAwards.

Congratulations to All and Thanks for a Great Year of Theatre!
