Hip-hop musical Hamilton could set a new record where reference is rocks up at the Olivier Awards on Sunday night.

It already goes into the biggest night in the UK theatrical calendar with a record-breaking 13 nominations.

Harry Potter and the Curst Child won nine awards last year, specifying a new record for the most Oliviers ever received.

The most Olivier Awards received by a musical to date is seven, a record set by Matilda in 2012.
