Ben Holtzman is the newest T. Fellow, a program developed by Harold Prince to teach and develop up-and-coming producers on Broadway.
Holtzman, a co-producer on Be More Chill, will be mentored by Prince, Sue Frost, Margo Lion, Tom Schumacher, Jeffrey Seller, and David Stone, among others. He'll also receive a stipend of $10,000 with a $20,000 budget for the development of a new theatrical production and have access to courses in Columbia’s MFA Theatre Management & Producing Program.
"I have known Ben Holtzman for a number of years. He's quick, inventive, extremely intelligent, disciplined, and ambitious. That's a good combination. I have no doubt that the T. Fellowship will add practical experience to his burgeoning career," said Prince.
Holtzman has worked with Prince previously, having served as an assistant to the director and being on hand during the 2017 production of Candide at New York City Opera, the Broadway musical retrospective Prince of Broadway, and the development of his memoir Sense of Occasion.
The T. Fellowship was established to honor the legacy of Broadway producer T. Edward Hambleton by supporting and developing a new generation of gifted, emerging creative theatrical producers.
