Theatregoers at select performances of Prince of Broadway, the new musical retrospective based on the career of director-producer Harold Prince, will enjoy the added bonus of a post-show talkback with the Broadway living legend.
Prince, who turned 89 this year, co-directed the production that takes audiences on a musical journey spanning more than six decades of Broadway history, including iconic moments from West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Sweeney Todd, The Phantom of the Opera, and more.
Prince will sit down with theatre scholar Foster Hirsch for post-show conversations on September 19 and 28, and October 3 and 12. For tickets to these select performances visit Telecharge.com or phone (212) 239-6200.
Prince is expected to share behind-the-scenes stories from many of the musicals on display in Prince of Broadway. He will also discuss his newly published theatrical memoir Sense of Occasion, an expanded and updated version of his 1974 publication Contradictions: Notes on Twenty-Six Years in the Theatre.
Prince of Broadway is billed as a limited engagement through October 22.
Prince holds a record 21 Tony Awards. His illustrious career as a director and producer includes such musicals as The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, West Side Story, She Loves Me, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Evita, Merrily We Roll Along, The Phantom of the Opera, Parade, and Kiss of the Spider Woman, as well as revivals of Show Boat and Candide.
