What do Show Boat, Kiss of the Spider Woman, The Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Follies, Company, Cabaret and She Loves Me have in common? They were all musicals directed and/or produced by Harold Prince.
As if that weren't enough of a resume, Prince has directed plays, written plays (Grandchild of Kings) and helped produce shows (Fiddler on the Roof, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, West Side Story). His next project is the musical Parade.
Worthy of a lifetime achievement award? The Graduate School of City University of New York certainly thinks so, for they're bestowing the 16th annual Edwin Booth Award on Prince May 13, 6:30 PM (EST). Prince will speak at the free public event in the school's Proshansky Auditorium, 33 West 42nd St.
