Harold Prince: The Director’s Life

Over the Summer and Fall of 2018, I worked once again with Director, Lonny Price on the PBS: Great Performances retrospective on the life and extraordinary career of Theater Producer & Director, Harold Prince. Hal’s seven decades in the theater spans from Broadway’s “Golden Age” to the contemporary blockbusters of today. Winner of 21 Tony Awards (the most of any individual), Prince’s peerless résumé includes such legendary shows as “West Side Story,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Cabaret,” “Company,” “Follies,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Evita,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and many more.

I designed, illustrated and animated several scenes to illustrate and bring to life some of the stories Hal tells of his fascinating experiences. These range from his childhood in New York in the 1930’s, through his time in Berlin during the war and getting his first Directing job.
