Hal Prince

Hoofers and helmers

One of the few boy wonders to deliver big time on his early promise, Prince is arguably the most successful director-producer in Broadway history. As a producer, he was immediately top-drawer with “Pajama Game,” “Damn Yankees,” “West Side Story,” “Fiorello!” and “Fiddler on the Roof.” In the 1960s, he added directorial duties to his producing, and in the following decade staged Stephen Sondheim’s best, from “Company” to “Sweeney Todd.” Prince also had pretty good luck helming Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Evita” and “The Phantom of the Opera,” and John Kander & Fred Ebb’s “Kiss of the Spider Woman” and “Cabaret,” which he also produced.
