There was some Canadian content in the winner’s circle at last night’s “Oliviers” in London.
At the British equivalent of the Tonys, the big winner was the intimate, sold-out production of “Cabaret.” Top acting honours went to Eddie Redmayne.
Redmayne’s co-star Jessie Buckley, was named best actress.
The Literary adaptation of Yann Martel’s “Life of Pi” won five prizes, including best new play.
The 58-year old author was raised in Vancouver. He won the Booker Prize for the book which then became a hit movie.
The supporting actor prize went to the seven performers who collectively play the puppet tiger in the show.
