Rachel Weisz and Jude Law Top Public-Voted Theater Awards
Rachel Weisz and Jude Law are the toast of London's West End again after winning the top prizes at the British capital's only public-voted theater awards. The pair walked away with trophies from the Critics' Circle Theater Awards in January with Weisz winning Best Actress for her turn in "A Streetcar Named Desire", while Law was honored with the award for Best Shakespearean Performance for his leading role in "Hamlet".
And the two Brits have won the Best Actor and Best Actress prizes from dedicated theater website Whatsonstage.co.uk, which asks the theater-going public to vote for their top performers and shows. Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart's sold-out run in "Waiting for Godot" was named Theatre Event of the Year.
Comic Rowan Atkinson walked away with the Best Actor in a Musical for his role as Fagin in "Oliver!", while American Broadway star Patina Miller was voted Best Actress in a Musical for playing Sister Mary Clarence in "Sister Act".
The awards, which were announced on Sunday, February 14, were voted for by 46,000 people.
