MTI was founded in 1952 by American composer and lyricist Frank Loesser and orchestrator Don Walker.[1] Along with the licensing rights to Loesser's works, the firm licenses production rights of numerous Broadway, Off-Broadway, and West End musicals, including many hit shows.[2] Freddie Gershon acquired MTI in 1988; Cameron Mackintosh became a partner in 1990 and majority owner in 2015.[3]
