Product description

Prince was a producer of The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Fiddler on the Roof, and West Side Story; producer and director of Cabaret; and was involved in a series of landmark collaborations with composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim including Company, Folles, A Little Night Music, and Sweeny Todd. He also directed Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita and Phantom of the Opera. His work has helped to significantly alter the musical with convention-challenging subject matter, music, staging and design. It's no wonder he's won more Tony Awards than anyone else: twenty and counting.

Author information

Foster Hirsch, professor of film at Brooklyn College, has updated the original edition of this book adding new interviews with Prince. He analyses Prince's more recent works, inc. Kiss of the Spider Woman, Parade, and the award-winning revival of Show Boat. He provides a riveting account of the creation and fortunes of Bounce, the 2003 musical that reunited Prince and Sondheim for the first time in twenty years.
