Celebrating the most influential and successful career in the American theatre of the past 60 years, Prince of Broadway will look at the circumstances and fortune, both good and bad, that led to Hal Prince creating some of the most enduring and beloved theater of all time, from 1954's The Pajama Game to The Phantom of the Opera, the longest-running show in Broadway history.
Trivia & History
The show was originally announced to open in Toronto, as a part of the Dancap Productions 2012 season. Following the Toronto run, the production would move to Broadway in November 2012. But, in January 2012 the Toronto run was cancelled. That spring, representatives from the production released a statement that the show would "continue without Dancap's involvement." Then in May 2012, it was delayed again from Fall 2012 to Fall 2013 as the production hunted for new producers.
In April 2013, the Broadway production was cancelled and a Tokyo premiere was announced.
