Henry Wilson Savage ( 21 March 1859 - 29 November 1927 ) was an American theatrical manager. He was born in New York City and graduated from Harvard in 1880. He became president of the Henry W. Savage Company, Inc., and of the Castle Square Opera Company of Boston, and director of the National Association of Theatrical Producing Managers of America. His more notable productions include The Prince of Pilsen, The Girl of the Golden West, The Merry Widow, The Chocolate Soldier, Everywoman (1913–14), and Mr. Wu (1914).

In the 1953 memoir Bring On the Girls! (by P. G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton), he is depicted as an extraordinarily manipulative and money-grubbing entrepreneur.
