The Lord Lloyd Webber. Producer and composer
Chairman: Charles Collier
UK theatre is currently experiencing an incredible high, with record-breaking box office returns in the West End and many Hollywood stars treading the boards. Last year alone saw Dame Helen Mirren, Jude Law, Dame Judi Dench, Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, to name but a few, appear on the London stage, drawing huge audiences and rave reviews. Our list celebrates the people who are making the biggest impact on and off stage: the producers, writers, directors and actors who help make British theatre among the best in the world.
As an agent and managing director and founding partner of Tavistock Wood, one of Europe’s leading artist management agencies in the film, theatre, television and publishing industries, Charles Collier has worked with many of the performers, directors and producers in the business. Charles was educated at Emmanuel College Cambridge and qualified as a lawyer with the law firm Allen & Overy, before focusing his professional practice within the media and entertainment sector.
