The Stage explained why Ben and Sutton were nominated for this award. According to the theatre industry publication, Ben captured Frankie Valli’s soaring falsetto in a performance of passion and urgency in the revival of Jersey Boys, giving a fully committed performance. And already a legend on Broadway, Sutton made her much-anticipated West End debut in the joyful revival of Cole Porter’s classic musical Anything Goes and did not disappoint – her performance “a sheer pleasure to witness”.

Trafalgar Entertainment is also proud to be sponsoring the Award for Best Creative West End Debut.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 18 September.
