His smash hits include some of the best loved and most talked about productions of the last twenty years, including Guys and Dolls, The King and I, Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Anything Goes and The Producers, to name but a few.

In 2006 he founded David Ian Productions, based in London’s Covent Garden. It currently produces or co-produces and/or general manages The Sound of Music (UK/Canada), Grease (London/ North America), La Cage Aux Folles (London), Chicago (UK Tour), Flashdance (UK Tour), and ’Britain’s Got Talent – Arena Tour’.
