Cameron Mackintosh was bornon 17 October 1946 in London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom. Cameron Mackintosh is #1939 in List Billionaires People In The World. Producer-turned-impresario Cameron Mackintosh is the first person to build a 10-figure fortune from musical theater. The son of a Jazz trumpeter and a one-time performer, Mackintosh saw his first musical at age 8. He got his start as a stagehand in London's West End and went on to produce the original London performances of such hits as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Phantom of the Opera and Cats. He still has stakes in the latter two and wholly owns rights to Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, meaning he gets paid anytime a professional theater stages the shows. He also owns 8 theaters in London and 75% of Musical Theater International, the largest owner of amateur Broadway theater rights in the world, which distributes scores and scripts to productions ranging from elementary school shows to regional theater adaptations. Up next: he's bringing Broadway hit Hamilton to London in 2017.
