Ian Talbot

As Artistic Director for over twenty years, Ian succeeded in introducing musical theatre to the Park, and it continues to be a hugely popular part of each season. These productions, ranging from Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum starring Roy Hudd to Gershwin’s Lady Be Good starring Bernard Cribbins and Joanna Riding, have received over twenty Olivier nominations including a win for Dame Judi Dench’s production of The Boys from Syracuse.
