SMILING FACES
By Roger B. Harris

  Jenna Russell/Sunday in the Park with George

The 2007 Laurence Olivier award winners have been announced and the big winner, musically speaking ,was Sunday in the Park with George. The Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine revival walked away with five precious treasures, including Outstanding Musical Production. Jenna Russell won for Best Actress in a Musical and Daniel Evans won for Best Actor in a Musical. The show also copped Best Set Design(David Farley and Timothy Bird) and Best Lighting Design(Natasha Chivers).

The Broadway import Caroline, or Change, penned by Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori, was voted Best New Musical. Sheila Hancock(Cabaret) won for Best Supporting Performance (male or female) in a Musical.

In something of a shocker, David Harrower's Blackbird beat out, among others, Tom Stoppard's Rock 'N' Roll, to win Best New Play. The Royal Shakespeare Company's production of the The Crucible, won for Best Revival; and Best Comedy honors went to The 39 Steps.

Individual winners included Tasmin Grieg, named Best Actress for Much Ado About Nothing and Rufus Sewell, named Best Actor for Rock 'N' Roll. Jim Norton was named Best Performer in a Supporting Role(male or female) for The Seafarer.

And what of those blockbuster musicals--The Sound of Music, Evita, Wicked, Porgy and Bess and Spamalot to name just a few, well, that's a tale for another day.
