In addition to his many world-famous shows on stage, Andrew has a huge selection of film credits, including producing the big-screen production of The Phantom of the Opera starring Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler.
Andrew has been familiar to television viewers across the world for many years with appearances on numerous arts programmes, documentaries, chat shows and live events, but has become a familiar TV face to a much wider audience, through pioneering television-casting for the theatre.
In July 2006, Andrew announced the launch of a groundbreaking new television show – the search for a new musical star. The show, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria, saw thousands of hopefuls audition for the part of Maria Von Trapp in a new production of The Sound of Music at the London Palladium. Connie Fisher secured the iconic leading role to great critical acclaim.
The format of the show was such a success that it led to the development of four more similar programmes, searching for new and unknown talent to front some of the world’s most renowned shows. ‘Any Dream Will Do’ led to the success of Lee Mead, ‘I’d Do Anything’ introduced us to Jodie Prenger, we saw Danielle Hope make it ‘Over The Rainbow’ landing the role of Dorothy and ITV’s ‘Superstar’ welcomed Ben Forster into the role of Jesus in the huge live Arena Tour of Jesus Christ Superstar.
