The Last Impresario


Michael White might just be the most famous person you’ve never heard of. The London theatre and film impresario produced over 300 shows and movies over the last 50 years. Bringing to the stage the risqué productions of Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Show and to the screen Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences, he irrevocably shaped the cultural scene of 1970s London. Fondly known as ‘Chalky’ by his friends, he is now in his late seventies and still enjoys partying like there’s no tomorrow.


  • Variety
    “Michael White is the star at the center of this gloriously English answer to The Kid Stays In The Picture.”
  • Hollywood Reporter
    “The kind of glitzy, gossipy, celebrity-jammed story that grabs you from the first frame."
  • AAP Local Today
    “A poignant portrait”
  • Wizard Radio
    “Every now and again somebody really special comes into the world to shake things up a bit –in 1936 Michael White was born. The most famous person you’ve never heard of.”
