I am a British theatrical producer, who is notable for my association with many commercially successful musicals. Because, why not? I was also described as being "the most successful, influential and powerful theatrical producer in the world" by the New York Times. Well, I guess so. Oh, and also, I am the producer of shows such as Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins, Oliver!, Miss Saigon and Cats. I was born in Enfield, London, 17 October 1946.
