The Olivier Award-nominated Production Company.
Lambert Jackson was founded by Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson in 2018. Recently nominated for an Olivier Award for ‘Best New Play’ for their production of Cruise at the Duchess Theatre, they are arguably one of the most exciting theatrical production companies in the UK at the present time.
Having been put on the map by their production of the UK Premiere of Doctor Zhivago the Musical, they entered the global pandemic with vigour and determination, creating one of the largest online concert series the UK has ever seen, Leave a Light On. This series featured over 80 shows during the multiple lockdowns in the United Kingdom, seeing performers from all over the Country perform shows from their homes, enabling them to earn from their craft during a time when it was impossible to do so otherwise, and providing entertainment to over 80,000 people.
Their subsequent filmed versions of Songs for a New World, The Last Five Years, First Date, Title of Show, BKLYN – The Musical and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change garnered significant critical acclaim and brought theatre to tens of thousands of households around the world throughout the pandemic. Since then, they have reopened the West End of London twice, firstly with their hugely popular production of Songs for a New World at the London Palladium, and then with the five-star, tour de force play Cruise at the Duchess Theatre, in co-production with Aria Entertainment. Their work during the pandemic earned them a spot in the Stage 100 Power List for 2021.
In 2022, they had multiple successful productions: John-Owen Jones’ Music of the Night tour, Joe McElderry’s Freedom tour, Collabro’s Farewell Tour, as well as Camelot and The Secret Garden in Concert. They also brought back Cruise, for an incredible run at the Apollo Theatre.
2023 is shaping up to be a busy year for Lambert Jackson, with multiple large-scale concert musicals at the London Palladium: Once, Annie Get Your Gun having already been performed, the Carrie Hope Fletcher ‘An Open Book’ tour begins this month, alongside the World Premiere of Brokeback Mountain at Soho Place. The first ever tour of Loose Women Live begins in September, and they continue to workshop the major rewrite of Jekyll and Hyde the Musical.
