The Society of London Theatre announces it's new president as Mark Rubinstein.
Mark Rubinstein takes over from Nica Burns as SOLT president
The Society of London Theatre has appointed independent producer Mark Rubinstein as the successor to Nica Burns as president.
Rubinstein is currently producing the hugely successfully production of Butley in the West End. Other credits include La Clique and War Horse. Rubinstein was previously finance director at the Royal Court and a senior producer for Bill Kenwright.
The announcement was made at SOLT’s annual general meeting, where Burns stood down after three years leading the association.
Nica Burns has been a very vocal and popular president of SOLT and made a barnstorming speech in support of the arts at this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards ceremony.
Rubinstein commented: “I appreciate the enormous work Nica Burns and (chief executive) Julian Bird have done and the changes they have made to the society to bring it further into the 21st century. I am greatly looking forward to working with everybody.”
Rubinstein will serve as SOLT president for the next three years with Burns becoming vice president.
