written by Sheridan Morley and Ruth Leon

"Sir Cameron Mackintosh is the most successful producer in the entire history of the stage musical, on Broadway and in London's West End, and in other theater capitals. He has been responsible for an amazing succession of hits, including Cats, Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon.

From childhood, Mackintosh knew he wanted to be a producer. In his single-minded pursuit of that goal, he has collaborated with Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Trevor Nunn, Harold Prince, and many other talents. In a salute to his career, elements from many of his most memorable shows have been recreated in a gala event entitled Hey, Mr. Producer!, first performed at London's Royal Albert Hall and taped for broadcast on PBS.

This book is the first ever to tell the story of the man behind so many of the triumphs of the contemporary musical stage. The authors,, who have known Mackintosh since his earliest days in the theater, have been given unnprecedented access to his archive. Hey, Mr. Producer!, then, is not only a lavishly illustrated study of his work, but also a unique backstage glimpse into Broadway's and London's milestone hits, as they are written, designed, rehearsed, and premiered to the excitement of audiences everywhere.

With a preface by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.

"It is not even a star show, though the first London stagings at the Barbican and the Palace did contain superlative central performances from Patti LuPone and Colm Wilkinson and Roger Allam and Alun Armstrong, actors drawn equally from the worlds of rock opera and classical theater, and it also launched the careers of such as Michael Ball and Frances Ruffelle." page 97
