Presented by The Society of West End Theatre in association with Benson and Hedges
Introduced by Barry Norman from Grosvenor House, London
London's West End theatres have seen nearly 100 productions this year: revivals, revues, new plays, opera, ballet and musicals, all of which qualify for consideration by the judging panel of the Society of West End Theatre.
Consisting of theatre owners and producers, the Society elects a committee of 12 judges - all people who either work in the theatre or are members of the theatre-going public-to decide on the winners.
With four nominations in each of the 21 categories, the recipients really must represent the very best in the theatre today.
Among the presenters of the various awards are:
Peter Barkworth , Albert Finney Penelope Keith , Rudolf Nureyev Dame Eva Turner
Among the individual nominations: Judi Dench , Paul Eddington Rupert Everett , David Healy Geoffrey Hutchings
Felicity Kendal , Rosemary Leach Trevor Peacock and the shows:
Poppy, Underneath the Arches Windy City, Andy Capp and Guys and Dolls
