Jude Law, Judi Dench up for Olivier theater awards

LONDON (AP) — Screen stars Jude Law, Tom Hiddleston and Judi Dench have seen their stage work rewarded with nominations at Britain's Laurence Olivier theater awards.

Law is a best-actor contender for "Henry V" and Hiddleston for another Shakespeare play, "Coriolanus." Dench is a best-actress nominee for her performance as the real-life inspiration for "Alice in Wonderland" in "Peter and Alice."

The Olivier awards, Britain's equivalent of Broadway's Tonys, honor achievements in London theater, musicals, dance and opera.

New musical "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and Stephen Sondheim revival "Merrily We Roll Along" lead the nominations, announced Monday, with seven apiece. Musicals "Once," ''The Book of Mormon" and "The Scottsboro Boys," are nominated in six categories each.

Winners will be announced April 13 during a ceremony at London's Royal Opera House.
