Cameron has produced the three longest-running musicals of all time: LES MISÉRABLES, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and CATS. His co-production with Disney of MARY POPPINS continues to disperse her magic globally and will return to the West End in autumn 2019, having broken box office records across the UK. His acclaimed new production of MISS SAIGON is currently touring North America.

Cameron also enjoys producing new versions of such classics as OLIVER!, MY FAIR LADY, OKLAHOMA!, CAROUSEL, the longest running production ever of Stephen Sondheim’s legendary FOLLIES and most recently reinventing HALF A SIXPENCE. Other original musicals he has produced include LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM, TOMFOOLERY, MARTIN GUERRE, BETTY BLUE EYES and THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK. Cameron, in partnership with Underbelly, recently co-produced the much-loved revival of his hit of 25 years ago, Louis Jordan’s FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE, which played at the Marble Arch Theatre.

In 2013, in conjunction with Working Title Films and Universal, Cameron produced the Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning film of LES MISÉRABLES.  

Cameron owns eight historic theatres in London's West End, all of which have undergone spectacular refurbishment. By far the most ambitious transformation has been Matcham's masterpiece, the Victoria Palace Theatre, which has been rebuilt, expanded and visually re-imagined and is currently home to the Olivier and Tony Award winning American musical, HAMILTON, which Cameron is co-producing with the original American producers.

Music Theatre International, the world’s largest owner of secondary rights of many of the greatest musicals ever written, is now one of Cameron’s companies.

Cameron was knighted in the 1996 New Year’s Honours for his services to British theatre and he is the first British producer to be elected to Broadway’s Theater Hall of Fame. In 1990, Cameron inaugurated the Chair of Contemporary Theatre at St. Catherine's College in Oxford University, currently held by Deborah Warner CBE.
