New producers for ‘Prince’

Broadway musical pushed to 2013

Harold Prince musical “Prince of Broadway” has set a new producing team and a new timeline, now aiming to open on Broadway in fall 2013.

Tuner, inspired by the bio and career of director-producer Prince, was originally slated to bow this fall, but that plan was scuttled earlier this spring when the show’s former lead producer, Aubrey Dan, exited the production as part of an overall decision to shut down his legit production company Dancap Prods.

New producing team will be led by Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Richard Frankel and Tom Viertel, the quartet whose Rialto credits include recent flop “Leap of Faith” as well as revivals of “Sweeney Todd,” “Company” and “A Little Night Music.”

Prince will helm the show with co-director and choreographer Susan Stroman. Book by David Thompson (“The Scottsboro Boys”) will incorporate songs from a slew of Prince shows including “The Pajama Game,” “Cabaret,” “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom of the Opera.”

It’s not yet clear how many of the production’s previously announced actors, including Linda Lavin, LaChanze and Shuler Hensley, will remain attached.
