PRINCE OF BROADWAY Starts Final Week in Japan; Is Broadway Next?

Japan can't get enough of PRINCE OF BROADWAY (see video below), and that's too bad, because there are just five performances left at Osaka's Umeda Arts Theatre. On opening night, after a solid ten minutes of applause after the final curtain, Prince and the rest of the creative team went out one more time. Despite the show's success overseas, an official announcement has not yet been made regrading a run on Broadway... but that hasn't kept us from wondering. So what's next for PRINCE? We're keeping our appendages crossed for an announcement soon and we'll keep you posted with updates!

PRINCE OF BROADWAY, which features words and music from many of the shows that have earned Hal Prince a record 21 Tony Awards, has a book by two-time Tony Award nominee David Thompson (The Scottsboro Boys, Steel Pier), co-direction and choreography by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact, Crazy for You) and direction by Mr. Prince.

The cast includes Josh Grisetti (It Shoulda Been You), Shuler Hensley (Tony Award winner for Oklahoma!), Ramin Karimloo(Phantom of the Opera, Tony Award nominee for Les Miserables), Nancy Opel (Honeymoon in Vegas, Tony Award nominee for Urinetown), Bryonha Marie Parham (After Midnight, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess), Emily Skinner(Billy Elliot, Tony Award nominee for Side Show), Mariand Torres (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Wicked), Kaley Ann Voorhees (Phantom of the Opera), Tony Yazbeck (Tony Award nominee for On the Town),Reon Yuzuki (former Top Star of the Takarazuka Revue Company's Star Troupe), Eric Van Tielen and Erin Clemons.

Celebrating one of the most influential and successful careers in the American theatre of the past 60 years, PRINCE OF BROADWAY will look at the circumstances and fortune, both good and bad, that led to Hal Prince creating some of the most enduring and beloved theatre of all time, including The Pajama Game, West Side Story, Fiorello!, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Evita, and The Phantom of the Opera, the longest-running show in Broadway history.
