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.show more
