General managers Stuart Thompson and David Turner, who have worked together for over seven years, are forming a new general management company, Thompson Turner Productions. The company will have King Charles III as its first Broadway credit and will continue to be a general management company for Broadway and touring shows. Thompson will continue to produce under the umbrella of Stuart Thompson Productions.

Stuart Thompson began his general management career on Broadway in 1989 with Aaron Sorkin's play A Few Good Men. His company has gone on to general manage 68 Broadway shows, including Terrence McNally's Master Class, the Broadway premiere of David Hare's Skylight, Yasmina Reza's Art and Life Times Three, Patrick Marber's Closer, Richard Greenberg's Take Me Out, John Patrick Shanley's Doubt, and others.

Beginning with Simon McBurney's production of The Chairs in 1998, Stuart Thompson began his producing career on Broadway in addition to general management, having since produced 26 other shows including The Tale Of The Allergist's Wife by Charles Busch, Proof by David Auburn, and God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza.

In 2008, David Turner joined Stuart Thompson Productions as a general manager and has since worked in that capacity on The Seagull, Boeing Boeing, Jerusalem with Mark Rylance, and more. Most recently, he has been general manager for Stuart Thompson Productions of all U.S. companies of The Book of Mormon, for which Thompson serves as executive producer, and a consulting general manager on the London production. He also cofounded and served as producing director for the Adirondack Theatre Festival from 1995 to 2007, and continues to serve on its board.
