Show stoppers: backstage at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards


The 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards was London’s party of the year. Editor Sarah Sands describes an evening that saw Sergeant Brody serenading The Savoy and the paper’s owner and host Evgeny Lebedev invites winners, presenters and special guests to take a seat on the world’s longest casting couch.

There is something about the stage that brings out the best in people. Performers who have achieved global fame on the big screen are humbled before an audience consisting of their old mates. In the climax of this year’s 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards, Dame Maggie Smith faltered in the spotlight, her eyes glistening with tears, a lump in her throat, as she said that her heart actually ached for the theatre and she wanted more than anything to return to it. ‘But there is no Mrs Lear!’ she cried, as directors and playwrights across the room conferred in a collective aim to find a role for Maggie.

Earlier in the evening, Clarke Peters’ soft and slow rendition of ‘There’s No Business like Show Business’ was spine-tingling. Dame Edna Everage was at the top of her game, sympathising with the Comedy Award winner David Walliams over parents who could not even spell his surname correctly. The host for the evening, Damian Lewis (below), came on stage with a copy of Friday’s Evening Standard and a superbly reworked version of ‘Leaning on a Lamp-post’. He stage-managed the astonishing roll call of talent and national institutions — Boris Johnson, Barbara Windsor, Sir David Attenborough, Helen Mirren, Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear — with wit and warmth. The lure of theatre never felt stronger.


Describe your perfect dressing room.

I like to make my dressing room homey, so I bring carpets, lights, cushions and bedspreads. I make my own dressing gowns, too, because I can never find the perfect one. It can’t be a bathrobe but something you can walk around backstage in and look respectable — not too see-through or lingerie-like — and it’s got to have pockets. If I were to do anything after acting, I think I’d start a dressing gown company.

Did you steal any props from The Audience?

I would have liked to have taken a couple of corgis, they were sweet. The one I had on a lead was so funny. She was excited to be there and was gagging to get on stage every night.

Dame Helen Mirren wins Standard award for The Audience


Dame Helen Mirren has won another award for her portrayal of the Queen.

Dame Helen, who won an Oscar for The Queen in 2007, was named best actress for her performance as the monarch in West End stage play The Audience at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

The best actor prize was given jointly to Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear, for their performances as Shakespeare’s Othello and Iago at the National.

Dame Maggie Smith and Lord Lloyd-Webber received special awards.

The former was presented with the Evening Standard Theatre Icon award by actress Kristin Scott Thomas, while the latter was recognised for his contribution to musical theatre.

An emotional Dame Maggie received a standing ovation as she collected her fifth Evening Standard theatre award.

“I know how long I’ve been working because I saw The Mousetrap before it came into London,” observed the actress, who turns 79 next month.

The veteran performer admitted to being “astonished” by the length of her career but said she was “very sad” not to have worked on the stage more often in recent years.

The experience of participating in the National Theatre’s 50th anniversary gala earlier this month, she said, “made my heart ache, because I’ve missed it an enormous amount”.

Before the ceremony, Dame Helen said she thought the praise she had received for The Audience was as much for the Queen as for her.

“I did feel very much that the response to the play was as much a response to that person, that extraordinary woman, as it was to my performance,” she told reporters.

Other honours were presented to actor Kevin Spacey for his work at London’s Old Vic theatre, and to David Walliams for his performance as Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The Little Britain star received his honour from Dame Edna Everage, who congratulated him on “overcoming a difficult background – parents who couldn’t spell Williams”.
