Kenny Wax Ltd
Since its foundation in 1995 by Kenny Wax, the company has firmly established itself as a leading Producer and General Manager in the West End and regionally. Kenny is President of the Society of London Theatre, and is regularly featured in The Stage newspaper’s 100 most influential industry members.
When Kenny and Stage Presence Limited asked Mischief Theatre to redraft their one hour play into a full length entertainment, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG became one of the surprise hits of 2014. The show was toured to popular acclaim before transferring to the Duchess Theatre, where it has played for two outstanding years, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015.
Kenny Wax is also the producer of celebrated new musical SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss.
Lauri has been working in theatre for the past 7 years, beginning in Dublin before moving to London over 4 years ago. Starting in theatre marketing, this opened the door to the industry which led him on to freelance producing and then coordinating West End and touring productions for Kenny Wax.
Lauri is a big fan of escape rooms and mysterious and is extremely excited to be working on The Mystery Agency.
