LONDON —

Pop-Shakespearean musical & Juliet leads the race for Britains Olivier theater awards, where Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is up for two trophies.

The Romeo and Juliet-inspired show, with music by Swedish songwriter Max Martin, has nine nominations, including best new musical.

Trevor Nunns revival of Fiddler on the Roof was nominated in eight categories on Tuesday, while Broadway import Dear Evan Hansen is up for seven prizes.

The one-woman stage version of Waller-Bridge’s barbed sitcom Fleabag is nominated for best entertainment or comedy play. Waller-Bridge is also nominated for best actress in a play, competing with Hayley Atwell for Rosmersholm, Sharon D. Clarke for Death of a Salesman, and Juliet Stevenson for The Doctor.

Fleabag co-star Andrew Scott is among the best-actor nominees for his performance as a self-centered actor in Noel Cowards Present Laughter. The other contenders are James McAvoy for Cyrano de Bergerac, Toby Jones for Uncle Vanya and Wendell Pierce for Death Of A Salesman.

The nominees for best new musical are Dear Evan Hansen, & Juliet, Amelie and Waitress. In the new-play category, the contenders are Lucy Prebbles A Very Expensive Poison, Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt; Arthur Schnitzler adaptation The Doctor and The Ocean At The End Of The Lane, a state adaption of Neil Gaimans novel.

The winners will be announced April 5 at Londons Royal Albert Hall.
