Congratulations to Craig Revel Horwood and all the cast and crew of the UK CHESS Tour which has won Best Regional Production at tonight’s What’s On Stage awards.
Hopefully this bodes really well for a West End transfer!
It’s significant that CHESS was the only touring show nominated, whilst the others (Hamlet – at Sheffield Crucible, Antony & Cleopatra – at the Liverpool Playhouse, 42nd Street – at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Lend Me a Tenor – at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth and A Raisin in the Sun – at the Royal Exchange, Manchester) were all shows ‘in situ’. Quite an achievement!
Craig Revel Horwood was at the awards to accept on behalf of the cast and crew who were mainly resting before heading off to open in Belfast this week.
