Harold Prince in Context
- 90 Downloads
Harold Prince is widely acknowledged as a crucial figure in the development of the postwar Broadway musical. He is associated with some of the most groundbreaking and acclaimed musicals of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, first as a producer (West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof) and then as producer-director (Cabaret, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd). In addition to his autobiography, Contradictions, Prince is the subject of several profiles, most notably Carol Ilson’s Harold Prince: A Director’s Journey and Foster Hirsch’s Harold Prince and the American Musical Theatre, which focus on his dual identity as the inheritor of Broadway showmanship and as a pioneer in bringing darker themes to the Broadway musical theatre.
