Hal Prince - In Memoriam

Aug 1, 2019

Harold Prince is a legend in the American theatre – the acclaimed director and producer behind a long list of America’s most iconic musicals and the winner of a staggering, record-breaking 21 Tony Awards died yesterday at the age of 91. Prince produced or directed (and sometimes both) many of the most enduring musicals in theater history, including “West Side Story,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Cabaret,” “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom of the Opera” – and so many more.

In 2017, Applause Books published Prince’s memoir “A Sense of Occasion” and Manhattan Theatre Club was presenting a Broadway musical retrospective celebrating his work entitled “Prince of Broadway.” Joe Donahue interviewed him for our show then and we re-aired that interview today in memoriam.
