"La Cage Aux Folles" nominated for 2009 Laurence Olivier Awards.

Yay! I'm thrilled for "Uncle Denis" and for Douglas Hodge. I remember reading how excited they were about doing the play, so I'm really glad it's so succesful.

Exuberant musical "La Cage Aux Folles" is the front-runner for the 2009 Laurence Olivier Awards, with seven nominations including best musical revival.

Musicals "Piaf," "Jersey Boys" and "Zorro" were each nominated in five categories on the shortlist, announced Tuesday. U.S. import "August: Osage County" was among several shows to get four nominations.

The Olivier awards, Britain's equivalent of New York's Tonys, honor achievements in London theater, musicals, dance and opera.

Nominations for "La Cage Aux Folles" include both lead actors, Douglas Hodge and Denis Lawson. They're up against "Jersey Boys" star Ryan Molloy, and Matt Rawle for Gypsy Kings' musical "Zorro" for best actor in a musical.

"La Cage," a revival of the feelgood 1980s show about a gay couple running a nightclub in the south of France, is the latest in a series of hits from south London's tiny Menier Chocolate Factory theater. It also received nominations for supporting actor, direction, costume design and choreography.
