February 04, 2009|Associated Press

The 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," a revival of the feel-good 1980s show about a gay couple running a nightclub in the south of France, include both lead actors, Douglas Hodge and Denis Lawson. They're up against "Jersey Boys" star Ryan Molloy, and Matt Rawle for the Gypsy Kings' musical "Zorro."

The winners will be announced March 8 in London.
