Producer. Tony award winning Broadway producer and director. He began his career as an assistant stage manager under producer and director George Abbott in the 1950 musical "Tickets, Please!" In 1955 he and Abbott co-produced the musical "The Pajama Game" which won a Tony Award for Best Musical. He co-produced six other Broadway productions which included the musical comedy "Damn Yankees" and "West Side Story." His first solo production was "A Call on Kuprin in 1961." He went on to produce over fifty Broadway productions and collaborated with award winning composers and lyricists Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Some of his most notable productions were "Fiddler on the Roof," " Westside Story," "Cabaret," Sweeney Todd," "Evita," and "Phantom of the Opera." He was the inspiration for John Lithgow's character in the Bob Fosse film "All That Jazz" and the subject of the 2017 musical "Prince of Broadway." He won twenty- one Tony Awards, more than other honoree. He wrote his autobiography "Contradictions: Notes on Twenty-six Years in the Theatre" in 1974; and was the subject of three biographies, "Harold Prince and the American Musical Theatre," "Harold Prince: From Pajama Game to Phantom of the Opera and Beyond," and "Harold Prince: A Director's Journey." The marquee lights on Broadway were dimmed on July 31, 2019 in his honor.
