Cameron Mackintosh is a British theatrical producer notable for his association with many commercially successful musicals. At the height of his success in 1990, he was described as being "the most successful, influential and powerful theatrical producer in the world" by the New York Times.

He is the producer of such shows as Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins, Martin Guerre and Cats.

Mackintosh began his theatre career in his late teens as a stage-hand at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Before long he began producing his own touring productions before becoming a London-based producer in the 1970s. Early London productions included Trelawny, The Card and Side By Side By Sondheim.

His first collaboration with Andrew Lloyd Webber was Cats which opened in 1981 and in 1996 became the longest-running musical in the West End or on Broadway.

His next milestone production was Les Miserables which opened in 1985, the longest-running musical in the world - both shows spawning an ever-expanding number of international productions. In 1986 he joined Lloyd Webber again to produce The Phantom of the Opera.

Subsequent successes included Follies, Miss Saigon, Five Guys Named Moe and a revival of Oliver! at the Palladium (followed by a national tour).

In 2001 Cameron presented My Fair Lady at the Royal National Theatre which transferred to the West End with a record box office advance and went on to win five Oliviers.

In 2004 Cameron realized a long-standing ambition to produce the stage musical of Mary Poppins both in the West End and on Broadway, where it won a Tony Award.

He was also a judge on the reality competition series I'd Do Anything, which searched for an unknown actress to play the role of Nancy in a production of Oliver! on the West End.

His awards include The Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theater, the Oscar Hammerstein Award. Cameron is President of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.

He was knighted in 1996 for his services to the British Theatre.
