Andrew Lloyd Webber's Theater Company Renamed LW Theatres
The company was formerly named Really Useful Theatres.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's theater company Really Useful Theatres (RUT) has officially announced it is now renamed LW Theatres.
The name change is designed to end any confusion between the theater division and the Really Useful Group (RUG), which handles Lloyd Webber's creative output.
The six theaters in London's West End owned by the composer will keep their own titles — The London Palladium, Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Cambridge Theatre, Her Majesty's Theatre, Gillian Lynne Theatre, and The Other Palace — as will the Adelphi Theatre which is co-owned with the Nederlander Group.
Rebecca Kane Burton, the managing director of LW Theatres, said in a statement, "The change will help the theater company communicate directly and more effectively with a wider public and the business world."
