Prince of Broadway is a musical celebration highlighting the extraordinary six-decade career of director and producer Hal Prince. The event will feature a conversation between Prince and three-time Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, who co-produced the album and provided new songs, arrangements, orchestration and music supervision for the show. In addition to a CD signing, members of the original cast will perform musical highlights.
Prince of Broadway Original Broadway Cast Recording is currently available in physical, digital and streaming formats. The 16-page CD booklet includes color production photography and liner notes by Hal Prince and book writer David Thompson.
When Prince of Broadway opened earlier this season, Variety raved “the Best 16 shows on Broadway are all playing in one theatre in this sumptuous show celebrating Harold Prince’s fabulous career.” Newsday called it “a cast of Broadway powerhouses in a show musical theater buffs will eat up.” Prince of Broadway ran from August 24 to October 29, 2017 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
The cast of Prince of Broadway features Tony Award winner Chuck Cooper (Caroline, or Change; Choir Boy at MTC), Drama Desk Award winner Janet Dacal (In The Heights, Good Vibrations), Bryonha Marie Parham (AfterMidnight, Porgy & Bess), Tony Award nominee Emily Skinner (Side Show, The Full Monty), two-time Tony Award nominee Brandon Uranowitz (Falsettos, An American in Paris), Kaley Ann Voorhees (The Phantom of the Opera, Candide), two-time Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier (Sunset Boulevard, Into The Woods), Tony Award nominee Tony Yazbeck (On the Town, Gypsy), and Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba (Contact, Curtains).
Prince of Broadway includes songs from many of the shows that earned Harold Prince a staggering 21 Tony Awards, as well as biographical material. The show features a book by two-time Tony nominee David Thompson (The Scottsboro Boys); new songs, arrangements, orchestration and music supervision by three-time Tony winner Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County); co-direction and choreography by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman (The Producers); and direction by Prince himself.
