Busy stage director Laurence Connor has signed with Paradigm for agency representation. Connor drew critical notice with his staging of the most recent London and Broadway revivals of Les Misérables and the Broadway debut of School Of Rock — The Musical, which he’s prepping for its London opening next month at the New London Theatre. For the new Broadway season he’s handling the West End transfer of Miss Saigon, completing the trifecta of Cameron Mackintosh-produced shows (his résumé also includes The Phantom Of The Opera).

“Laurence Connor is a first-rate director with an incredible gift for completely reimagining classic musicals on Broadway and internationally,” said Jack Tantleff, who heads Paradigm’s Theatre Literary Department. “We are thrilled for him to join the Paradigm family and look forward to what promises to be a long, thrilling creative relationship.”

Connor is co-represented and managed by Michael Garrett of Global Artists.
