Executive Producer

“For me, the real thrill of theatre has always been in the creation of shows. It is a high-risk business, of course, but so far I’ve been lucky both in finding backers that I can persuade to invest, and in working with terrific creative teams.”

John created Music & Lyrics Ltd. in 2011, alongside forming his own theatre production company – John Stalker Productions. His move into executive producing came after a 29-year career leading major UK theatres, which include: The Duke’s Theatre, Lancaster, Liverpool Playhouse, Birmingham Rep and Edinburgh’s King’s and Festival Theatres.

Music & Lyrics Ltd.

Unique amongst touring companies, Music & Lyrics Ltd. produces musicals as a consortium of the UK’s largest and most successful no.1 presenting venues. Each member sharing the risks and reaping the rewards of bringing award-wining, major musical productions to large and enthusiastic audiences.
