Eddie Redmayne and Emma Corrin are among the actors nominated for top gongs at the 2022 Olivier Theatre Awards.

Leading the pack with 11 nominations across the board is the musical revival of Cabaret, which transformed the West End’s Playhouse Theatre into the Kit Kat Club.

Life Of Pi at Wyndham’s Theatre and the classic musical revival of Anything Goes at the Barbican Theatre follow, with nine nominations each.

Redmayne has received the nod for best actor in a musical for his portrayal of Emcee, the flamboyant master of ceremonies, in Cabaret.

He will face competition on the night from Olly Dobson for the musical adaptation of Back To The Future, Arinze Kene for Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical and Robert Lindsay for Anything Goes.

While in the female category, musical veteran Sutton Foster has received a nomination for her role as Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes, for which she previously won a Tony award.

She will go up against Jessie Buckley for Cabaret, Beverley Knight for The Drifters Girl and Stephanie McKeon for Frozen.
