NEW YORK (AP) - Warner Bros. is reorganizing the top of its live theater division.

Mark Kaufman and Raymond Wu were named as co-executive vice presidents Tuesday by Chairman and CEO Barry Meyer.

Kaufman and Wu will both report to Alan Horn, who is now overseeing the theatrical division. Gregg Maday, who had been executive vice president of the unit, is out.

Wu has been with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures since 2005, and he was a lead producer of the Broadway musical “Elf.” Kaufman joins Warner Bros. from Unique Features. At New Line Cinema, he supervised the Broadway productions of “Hairspray” and “The Wedding Singer.”

While Warner Bros. had a hit with “Elf,” it struggled with “Baby, It’s You!” and “Lestat.” Next up is a Sam Mendes-directed adaptation of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
