A celebration and tribute to the late Broadway pioneer Harold Prince will be held December 16 at the Majestic Theatre, home to The Phantom of the Opera, one of the many productions the late auteur helmed. Prince passed away July 31, 2019, at the age of 91.
Doors for the ceremony will open at 1 PM, with friends, family, and the theatre community invited to attend. The memorial will begin at 1:30 PM. Seating is general admission.
In total, Prince produced 33 Broadway shows and directed 20. With 21 Tony Awards, he is the most Tony-winning individual in history, yet his contributions to Broadway and the theatrical landscape at large are immeasurable. Prince remains represented on Broadway with Phantom, the longest-running production ever on Broadway. In addition, Prince frequently worked with composer Stephen Sondheim, collaborating on a string of shows through the 1970s including Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, and Sweeney Todd.
