U.K. theatre executive Colin Ingram has been tapped as executive vice president of MSG Productions. Ingram, who formerly worked for The Old Vic, Disney Theatrical and his own production/general management company, will oversee current and future live productions for the Madison Square Garden company.

MSG Productions state that Ingram will be responsible for creating and implementing new proprietary productions and events for MSG venues, as well as identifying potential to bring current live entertainment assets to other markets. Following last season's successful run of the Rockettes New York City Spring Spectacular, Ingram will also work to explore potential ways to expand the Rockettes brand. Ingram's extensive theatrical experience includes production administrator for the London production of Les Miserables, general manager/managing director of The Lion King in London and Beauty and the Beast on U.K. tour, as well as serving as executive producer of the Old Vic Theatre Company and Old Vic Productions. Ingram consulted on the Australian and New York productions of Billy Elliot and was lead producer of the short-lived Broadway musical Ghost.

In addition to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and the Rockettes New York Spectacular, both starring the Rockettes, MSG Productions stages live entertainment at several venues including Madison Square Garden, The Theater at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall and the Beacon Theatre; as well as the Forum in Inglewood, CA; The Chicago Theatre; and the Wang Theatre in Boston, MA.

"Colin's impressive career combines significant experience overseeing the creative side of productions, with a proven track record of delivering growth and profitability," MSG president and CEO, David O'Connor said in a statement. "We are extremely fortunate to have such as seasoned executive in this important role — as we focus on opportunities to build our historic brands, while exploring new vehicles that grow our presence in the live entertainment industry."
