Actress Pia Doyes will receive this year’s Oeuvre Musical Award at the Music Awards, which will be held on April 28. Dawes received the award because, according to the jury, she is “the Netherlands’ greatest musical star”.
The Special Works Award has previously been given to people such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jan Thaks, Bjorn ‘Abba’ Olvius, Job van den Ende, Jos Brink, Willem Neigault, Harry Bannick and Annie MJ Schmidt. The award is not awarded every year.
Dawes is celebrating its 35th anniversary at the theater this year. She played her first role in Holland in the musical Cats, abroad she made her debut in Vienna in Little Shop of Horrors. Since then, the actress has played in more than fifty productions at home and abroad. She has performed on stage in Holland, Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, United States and Russia. Among her biggest productions were hits like Elizabeth, Billy Elliot, Sunset Boulevard, Cabaret, and Chicago.
Next season, Doyce will appear in the Dutch version of the Broadway play The Prom. She plays the frustrated actress Dee Dee Allen, who is hoping for a big star role at the end of her career. The role was played by Meryl Streep in the Netflix film adaptation, which was released a year ago.
