Zachary Hunt, Nathan Parkinson, Tom Roe, Natassia Bustamante and Melinda Orengo, Police Cops: the Musical
Bonnie Langford, Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends
I couldn’t quite decide how to categorise the performers of Police Cops (introducing a best ensemble award just feels like too much work!) so I’m recognising all of their hilarious work here. And I knew I’d love Bonnie Langford singing ‘I’m Still Here’ but I wasn’t prepared for just how much I’d be so moved by it.
Maimuna Memon, Standing at the Sky’s Edge
Amy Trigg, The Little Big Things
Memon’s anguished solo was one of the standout moments in a standout show. And Trigg’s scene-stealing work as the plain-speaking physio was perfectly pitched @sohoplace.
