15th February 2010|Rowan Atkinson

Congratulations to Rowan Atkinson who collected the Best Actor in a Musical Award for his musical theatre debut as Fagin in Oliver!In his acceptance speech, Rowan said he was touched by the recognition. “When I embarked on this journey to play the part of Fagin, I did so with a degree of apprehension. I hadn’t been on the West End stage in 20 years and I had never sung in a musical - well, I’d never sung really … So I’d like to thank you all sitting there very much indeed, but I’d also like to thank mostly all those who voted for me, and all those real people who spent real money to come and see the show.”For details of the other winnershttp://awards.whatsonstage.com/index.php?pg=1088
