Playbill reports that Simon & Schuster VP Bill Gaden is leaving publishing for a new career in musical theater. As the senior vice-president and general manager of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, a position created just for him, Gaden’s mission, according to R&H prez Ted Chapin, will be “to help the company continue to run efficiently, while working with the extraordinary team we already have in place to maximize potential for the copyrights and authors we represent.” And that includes a lot more than just Rodgers & Hammerstein; their theatrical publication wing’s recent triumphs include six Tonys for The Light in the Piazza. Of course, not every musical can be a hit: their Andrew Lloyd Webber holdings may include Cats, Evita, and Jesus Christ Superstar, but don’t expect any revivals of his flopped adaptation of Wodehouse, By Jeeves, anytime soon. Not to mention the stage version of Footloose… Personally, if I could get Gaden’s ear, I’d be pushing for a revival of Free to Be… You and Me, but then again maybe I’m just throwing in all these references because I know Rachel will dig them…
