BWW TV: Step Into the World of Hal Prince at New Exhibit at the New York Public Libra PhotoBWW TV: Step Into the World of Hal Prince at New Exhibit at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
by BroadwayWorld TV - September 21, 2019

Few people have helped to define the American musical today more than Harold 'Hal' Prince. His resume includes some of the most important titles of the past century: West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Sweeney Todd, and Phantom of the Opera. Prince's impact on Broadway stemmed from his reinvention of musical theatre from the script- and score-based model to a more visual, almost cinematic art form in which the director is auteur. But it also stemmed from his appreciation for collaboration and his trusted collaborators--talented friends and colleagues who could help achieve his singular vision for a production.
