The Olivier Awards (London’s equivalent of the Tonys) were handed out this weekend to the latest crop of musicals and plays to arrive on the West End. While some say that the results were predictable, we here in the States were particularly excited to see hometown favorite Gavin Creel snag Best Actor in a Musical for his performance in Book of Mormon. Nominated twice for a Tony Award (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Hair), we had the opportunity to interview Creel back in 2012 and have been following his trajectory to stardom ever since. Another exciting win was the smashing revival of Merrily We Roll Along.

Here’s a full list of this year’s winners:
