Grant Olding for Best Original Score for ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
"This is just unbelievable! I just I can't believe the score has been recognized. You see, we don't have honors for this category in England so just to be acknowledged by the community in New York for my work is such an honor and a thrill. I was actually at an award's ceremony when I found out and I had 35 texts and emails with the news when I finally looked at my phone. I was completly shocked and am looking forward to coming back for the awards soon. "
Grant Olding is a musical theatre lyricist and composer whose work for the National includes England People Very Nice, The Man of Mode, The Alchemist and Southwark Fair.
