'Prince of Broadway' Revamped From Soup to Nuts

In yet another development in the life of the upcoming Broadway-bound musical Prince of Broadway, a retrospective of the life of producer and director Harold Prince, the show has both a new set of producers and a new set of dates. After losing its original producers recently, a new crop of producers has taken the reigns, including Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, and Thomas Viertel. Also, though the show was originally announced for a fall 2012 opening, the show is now expected to receive a fall 2013 Broadway berth. The show will be directed by 21-time Tony-winner Harold Prince, co-directed by five-time Tony-winner Susan Stroman, and will feature a book by Tony-nominee David Thompson.

"We are honored, thrilled and excited to be producing Prince of Broadway," said Steven Baruch on behalf of the producing team. "Hal Prince has the most important legacy in the American theatre and he continues to create great work for the stage. Hal and his creative team have completed an extraordinary new musical, which we want to give the best possible Broadway production."

Baruch added, "After reviewing everything ranging from the schedules of the creative team, theatre availability, advance group sales needs, among many other elements, we have determined that the optimum time for the show to open on Broadway would be the Fall of 2013."
