Joop van den Ende is one of the Netherlands’ most well known cultural entrepreneurs. Born in 1942, the world of the theatre has alwaysbeen in his blood. In 1998 he decided to bring all his theatre activities together and founded Stage Entertainment. Joop van den Ende is now president of the Supervisory Board, whilst CEO Henk Kivits is responsible for all of the company’s activities and results.
Stage Entertainment’s business strategy and continued success rely on three activities: operating world class venues, producing a wide range of leading international content, and creating and developing new musicals and shows. Stage Entertainment spread its wings to New York in 1997 and Germany in 2000, and followed this with rapid expansion to the United Kingdom, Spain, Russia, France and Italy. Our productions now attract over 10 million visitors each year. Our focus on the highest production values for our shows is matched only by our belief that welcoming staff and beautiful theatres are a crucial part of a theatregoer’s memory of the perfect evening out.
