Book Garth Howard Drabinsky for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
awyer/entrepreneur Garth Howard Drabinsky (b at Toronto 27 Oct 1948). Drabinsky was one of the world's most dominant cinema exhibitors by 1987, managing over 1500 screens in approximately 500 sites across North America. He uses bold, inventive techniques. At Cineplex, he obtained the ability to compete for first-run American productions by exposing exclusive deals between Famous Players and Odeon and the studios, prompting government regulation to shatter a monopoly. His method of refurbishing existing cinema houses and establishing elegant new ones has been credited with bringing people back to the movies. Drabinsky was a producer and exhibitor who financed 6 Canadian feature films between 1977 and 1982. He also backed Paul Newman's film of The Glass Menagerie (1987). Drabinsky partnered Cineplex with MCA, but was fired in 1989. As part of his buy-out, he got the company's live entertainment section and Canadian Phantom rights. Livent Co gave Drabinsky a chance to break into another entertainment medium. Phantom was a blockbuster. Drabinsky developed further stage properties for Toronto, Canada, and New York. Kiss of the Spider Woman played to sold-out crowds for a year in Toronto before coming to Broadway in 1992. A significant revival of Showboat launched in Toronto and New York (1993-94) to critical acclaim, followed by Ragtime, the first Livent performance made wholly in-house. Drabinsky's flare for dramatic presentation helped Toronto become a pre-Broadway hotspot. He revolutionized how musicals were made and promoted, introducing a system of vertical integration at Livent where shows were planned, written, produced, and marketed under the business umbrella and then produced in company-owned theatres. When Livent went public in 1983, the company swiftly raised $50 million and delivered excellent dividends. In 1998, Drabinsky was fired for suspicious accounting methods. A succession of lawsuits obscured Livent's theatrical success with Fosse (1999). Despite his.
