The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization Remembers Hal Prince...
"Hal Prince was the definition of a man-of-the-theater. His career was extraordinary, as everyone knows, but the fact that he never stopped searching for projects, never stopped thinking about Broadway and world theater, and never stopped encouraging future generations will be a large part of his legacy. Having benefitted from his allowing me to "gofer" on FOLLIES to working directly with him on his re-thinking of SHOW BOAT, I will miss all my conversations with him.
On SHOW BOAT, he tossed aside his disinterest in 'revivals' to create a modern way to experience the 'grand old man' of musical theater for modern times. And it did it with his usual flair and showmanship.
He is a man who will be missed for years, as each new generation discovers the amazing effect he had on Broadway. Goodnight, sweet Prince." -Ted Chapin, President, The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization
