The red carpet was a feast for the eyes, with an array of florals, colours, and luxurious diamonds on display. It was truly a night to remember!
The awards event also had big winners of the night, including Kimberly Akimbo (Best Musical), Leopoldstadt (Best Play), Parade (Best Musical Revival), Killing Eve’s Jodie Corner took home the Best Leading Actress in a Play trophy in a tight competition against Jessica Chastain, Audra McDonald, and Jessica Hecht.
