Andrew Lloyd Webber, the British composer who also counts theatre producer and theatre owner among his many titles, has announced a name change for Really Useful Theatres, which was founded in 2004.

Now titled LW Theatres, the operation oversees the operation of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, The London Palladium, The Cambridge Theatre, The Adelphi Theatre (co-owned with the Nederlander Group), The Gillian Lynne Theatre, The Other Palace, and Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The name was changed in order to delineate between Lloyd Webber’s creative umbrella, The Really Useful Group, founded in 1977 to oversee projects on film, television, and theatre, as well as concert, publishing, and merchandising.

Rebecca Kane Burton, the managing director of LW Theatres, said, “The change will help the theatre company communicate directly and more effectively with a wider public and the business world.”
