The 2014 Oliver Awards were given out Sunday, April 13 at the Royal Opera House in London. Chimerica led the tally with a total of five awards, including Best New Play, Book of Mormon took four, including Best New Musical, and Once winning two. The real winner of the evening was the Almeda Theater garnering a total of 8 awards for their West End transfers of a new adaptation of Ibsen's Ghosts and Chimerica, a the story of a photojournalist obsessed with an image he had taken during the Tiananmen Square protest. Broadway's own Gavil Creel took home the award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayel of Elder Price in The Book of Mormon.
Winner of last year's Tony for best musical, Once is based on a popular 2007 indie movie, with which, apparently, most of the civilised world (except me) seems to be familiar.
