    I am wondering which of these plays or productions might come to the U.S. for a Broadway or OB run? Would love to see the Imelda Staunton Gypsy and esp. People, Places and Things, Cumberbatch’s Hamlet, Bend It Like Beckham, Mrs Henderson Presents… Farinelli and the King seems like a sure transfer…

    With the win for Best Play, Hangmen seems a reasonable expectation for transfer. With no Olivier nominations for the cast, fresh faces likely.

    I thought Bronwyn James as the troubled adolescent girl was the standout, but there are certainly more well written roles in the funny yet terrifying thriller to turn Tony voters’ heads.
