Harold Prince, the legendary musical theatre producer-director who shepherded Parade through readings and workshops to full production, has been nominated for a Best Director (Musical) Tony Award.

Prince is best-known, perhaps, as the director who helped solidify the idea of the concept musical, staging such groundbreaking shows as Cabaret, Company and Follies. His collaborations with Stephen Sondheim -- A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, among others -- inspired a generation of writers, actors and directors.

Before he started directing in 1962, he was a producer working on such shows as The Pajama Game, Fiorello! and West Side Story.

For Livent, which co-produced Parade with Lincoln Center, he staged a revisionist Show Boat, plus Kiss of the Spider Woman and Candide.
