HAL PRINCE

HAL PRINCE

  • By KEN WERTHER

Like standing ovations, the use of the word legend to describe someone has become quite commonplace. On July 31, however, we lost a true legend — theatrical titan Harold Prince. A revered Broadway producer and director, he was associated with a head-spinning number of the best known and loved musicals of the 20thcentury. A Little Night Music, Cabaret, Candide, Evita, Fiddler on the Roof, Follies … Over the span of his stunning career he garnered 21 Tony Awards (more than anybody else in history) — eight for directing, 10 for producing, and three special awards (including lifetime achievement in the theatre). According to Masterworks Broadway, “Besides his achievements as a producer and director, Prince is also known for bringing innovation to the theatrical arts. He was a pioneer in the development of the ‘concept musical,’ using an idea or theme rather than a traditional story.”

Kiss of the Spider Woman, Merrily We Roll Along, On the Twentieth Century, Pacific Overtures … In 2000 he was awarded the National Medal of the Arts. Composer Jason Robert Brown said, “Hal believed in theatre; he believed in what it could do.” Parade, She Loves Me, Show Boat, The Phantom of the Opera …Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “There isn’t anybody working in musical theatre on either side of the Atlantic who doesn’t owe an enormous debt to this extraordinary man.” What more is there to say?

Hal Prince (1928-2019).

Jerry Weintraub Presents… on view at GRAMMY Museum

Jerry Weintraub…

  • By Karen Vock

We love the GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. Live for their dazzling exhibitions spotlighting the people who make great music but we also love to learn about business innovators in the music industry. Now showing through early December, Jerry Weintraub Presents celebrates one of the key players behind the most memorable concert tours of the 1970s. Weintraub is credited with being the first to recognize the potential for great artists to play to larger audiences in stadiums and arenas and to create one-of-a-kind events. With this being the norm for decades now, it’s difficult to imagine this wasn’t always the case in the music industry. The stellar roster of artists Weintraub worked with include Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, John Denver, The Carpenters, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Rick James, Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Commodores, the Bee Gees, The Moody Blues, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney.

This new exhibit showcases Weintraub’s business acumen, moxie, and sense of showmanship during his decades focusing on artist management and concert promotion. Original items on display include personalized tour jackets, artist contracts, tour documents and more. The GRAMMY Museum® hosts a number of world class exhibitions and experiences throughout the year and has a fascinating schedule of programmed events and discussions with industry icons.
