The Stage 100 – In Full
This week marks the release of The Stage 100, our annual list of the great and the good in UK theatre.
As revealed on this site yesterday, Howard Panter and Rosemary Squire – the joint chief executives of Ambassador Theatre Group – have come top, displacing last year’s winner Cameron Mackintosh, as well as Andrew Lloyd Webber – the most successful entrant in the history of The Stage 100.
But, we’re sure you’re interested to find out who else has made the list in full. So, for your consideration, please find below the Stage 100, in full.
Although, if you want to read our justifications for each entrant you’ll have to pop into a newsagent and pick up a copy of The Stage, dated December 30, 2009. It’s a special Stage 100 edition, with lots of special features and a full break down of both the Stage 100 and the new state of theatre ownership in the UK.
Meanwhile, you can also listen to our podcast discussion of the list here.
Also, if you disagree with our decisions, please do leave a comment at the bottom. Also, from next week, we’ll be running a readers’ Stage 100, so you’ll have an opportunity to vote for your favourite online. Please check back in the new year.
