Alain Boublil (Playwright) Alain Boublil’s first musical, La Revolution Française in 1973, marked his transition from songwriting to musical theatre and the start of his collaboration with Claude-Michel Schönberg with the hit album that became the first ever staged French musical. His idea of writing a musical version of Les Misérables brought them together again in 1978. The acclaimed show was written over a two-year period and recorded as an album before its opening at the Palais de Sports in Paris in September 1980. In 1983 Mr. Boublil met Cameron Mackintosh which led to his first London production Abbacadabra (a musical fairy-tale set to ABBA music) and to working with Claude-Michel and directors and writers on the English language adaptation of Les Misérables. The show has subsequently opened in 19 countries and 14 languages. Among the many awards Mr. Boublil has received were two Tony Awards in 1987 for Best Score and Best Book for the NY production and a 1988 Grammy for the Best Original Broadway Cast Recording which he co-produced with Claude-Michel Schönberg. Miss Saigon opened on September 20, 1989 at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London and on April 11, 1991 in NY. The show has also played in Tokyo and Toronto with future production scheduled for Sydney, Australia and Stuttgart, Germany. Mr. Boublil will maintain a close association with all the international productions of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon while working with Claude-Michel on the screenplays for motion picture versions of both musicals.
Claude-Michel Schönberg (Playwright/Composer) Claude-Michel Schönberg is a successful record producer and songwriter who began his collaboration with Alain Boublil in 1973, writing the very first French musical, La Revolution Française. Mr. Schönberg played the role of Louis XVI in that production and also co-produced the double-gold record album of the show. In 1974, he recorded an album, singing his own compositions and lyrics, which included the number one hit single Le Premier Pas. In 1980, after two years’ work on the score, Mr. Schönberg and Mr. Boublil’s musical Les Misérables opened in Paris, where it was seen by more than 1.5 million people. In 1983, Mr. Schönberg produced an opera album in Paris with Julia Migenes Johnson and the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. Following work on the London production of Les Misérables (the 3rd longest running musical in British theatre history), Mr. Schönberg co-produced the double-platinum London cast album and became involved in casting all the major overseas productions of the show, including the American, Japanese and Australian companies. He won two coveted Tony Awards, for Best Score and Book, for the Broadway production of Les Misérables and a Grammy Award for the Best Original Cast Recording, which he co-produced with Alain Boublil. He also worked closely on the symphonic recording of the show. His score for Miss Saigon, again written in collaboration with Alain Boublil, is now repeating the international success story of Les Misérables. Produced by Cameron Mackintosh and again bringing together many members of the creative team behind Les Misérables, Miss Saigon opened with huge success at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London in September 1989, in NY in April 1991, in Tokyo in May 1992 and in Chicago (the first national U.S. tour) in November 1992. Future productions will open in Sydney, Australia and Stuttgart, Germany. Now Claude-Michel is back at the keyboards, composing their next musical, Martin Guerre, while keeping close eye on the development of the screenplays for Les Misérables and Miss Saigon.

Aaron A. Young (Managing Director) Aaron joined the Fulton team in 2003. After several years in shopping center marketing, Aaron decided to devote his career to furthering the careers of artists in order to break the cycle of belief that the arts are a nice hobby but not a worthwhile profession. For six seasons, he directed the marketing and management of the Sundance Film Festival and Sundance Theatre, both programs of Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute. Aaron has also served as general manager for the Missouri Repertory Theatre and marketing and corporate development manager for Kansas City’s historic Folly Theatre. A magna cum laude graduate of Brigham Young University and formerly a professional actor, singer, and pianist, Aaron now spends his free time enjoying the pursuits of his wife and daughters, serving at church, and occasionally knitting a new pair of socks. He is very pleased that the Fulton is able to provide professional wages and benefits to more than 250 artists and arts administrators every year.
Actors’ Equity Association Founded in 1913, Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) represents more than 49,000 actors and stage managers in the U.S. AEA’s mission is to advance, promote and foster the art of live theatre as an essential component of our society. AEA negotiates wages and working conditions, providing a wide range of benefits, including health and pension plans for its members. AEA is a member of the AFL-CIO, and is affiliated with the FIA, an international association of performing arts unions. AEA and the League of Resident Theatres (LORT), a national association of non-profit regional theatres, negotiated our first contract in 1966. Our goal is to foster the artistic life of both the regional non-profit theatre, and the actors who work in that theatre, by establishing methods of operation to which the individual theatres and actors subscribe in a collective and mutually beneficial relationship. Together, we are dedicated to upholding the highest artistic standards in our community.
