Cameron Mackintosh

Producer and Co-Creator

For nearly 50 years Cameron Mackintosh has been producing more musicals than anyone else in history, including the three longest-running musicals of all time, Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera and Cats, which are still running extraordinarily successfully across the world. Uniquely, Cameron, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon, has mounted new versions of these classic musicals which are now proving as successful as the original. Following its huge recent success in the West End, his new production of Miss Saigon will open on Broadway in March 2017 and also commence a national tour in the UK later that year. Joining this list of legendary titles, his coproduction with Disney of Mary Poppins, currently a smash hit all over again on a UK national tour, continues to disperse her magic globally.As well as original musicals, Cameron enjoys producing new versions of such classics as Oliver!, My Fair Lady, Stephen Sondheim’s legendary Follies and Barnum. Other original musicals he has produced include Little Shop of Horrors, Side By Side By Sondheim, Martin Guerre, The Witches of Eastwick and Betty Blue Eyes. Les Misérables remains the longest-running musical in the world and the original is now in its 31st year in London. Over the next three years he has over 30 new productions of his musicals due to open around the world. In 2013, Cameron produced his first hugely successful musical film in conjunction with Working Title Films and Universal – the Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning Les Misérables. The same producing team are collaborating and preparing film versions of Oliver! and Miss Saigon. A film of the 25th anniversary performance of the new stage production of Miss Saigon is being screened in cinemas worldwide. Cameron owns eight historic theatres in London’s West End, seven of which have undergone spectacular refurbishment, whilst his recent acquisition of the Victoria Palace Theatre is due to have a major refurbishment this autumn prior to reopening in the autumn of 2017 with the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning American musical, Hamilton which he is co-producing with the original American producers.
