David Hull, head of corporate services at commercial firm Edge & Ellison, will be at the opening night of Jesus Christ Superstar in London's renovated Lyceum Theatre.

The curtains rise again in November – 57 years after they last fell. It will mark the culmination of years of legal negotiations to restore the theatre to its former glory. Edge & Ellison has been involved in the £14.5m renovation project from the start, over three years ago, dealing with acquisition of the leasehold through to the agreements for the production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical. The firm will continue to act for the theatre.

Hull said what made the project interesting was that it required a range of legal skills, from construction and licensing to entertainment.
