Cameron Mackintosh BIO

Cameron’s Original productions include LES MISÉRABLES, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and CATS - the three longest running musicals of all time, now in their 4th decades - MISS SAIGON, MARY POPPINS (currently back in the West End and co-produced with Disney), LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, SONG AND DANCE, TOMFOOLERY, MARTIN GUERRE, THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK, FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE and SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM. He also reinvented modern versions of OLIVER!, FOLLIES, HALF A SIXPENCE, BARNUM and MY FAIR LADY. His new versions of LES MISÉRABLES, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, MISS SAIGON and OLIVER! are now proving as successful as the original productions.
In 2013, alongside Working Title Films and Universal, Cameron produced the hugely successful Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning film adaptation of LES MISÉRABLES which is the most successful movie ever of an original stage musical.
The first sold-out run of the LES MISÉRABLES staged concert at the Gielgud Theatre was also broadcast live into cinemas worldwide and is now the highest grossing one-night live event performance of all time - a unique achievement in the history of Musical Theatre. The all-star cast have been reunited for a special COVID-busting Christmas season which again sold out in 24 hours and was extended twice due to phenomenal demand.
Cameron owns and operates eight historic London theatres which have all been spectacularly rebuilt and refurbished for the 21st century. They house many of London’s successful hits. The Sondheim, formerly known as the Queen’s, has been rebuilt and renamed in honour of Cameron’s great friend, theatrical legend Stephen Sondheim.
Music Theatre International, the world’s largest owner of secondary rights of many of the greatest musicals ever written, is now one of Cameron’s companies.
Cameron was knighted in the 1996 New Year’s Honours for his services to British theatre and he is the first British producer to be elected to Broadway’s Theater Hall of Fame. In 1990, Cameron inaugurated the Chair of Contemporary Theatre at St. Catherine's College in Oxford University. He is also the president of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
