THE SHOW “Prince of Broadway”

THE DEAL Following years of delays, “Prince of Broadway,” a revue celebrating the long and accomplished career of producer-director Hal Prince (who produced hits like “West Side Story” and “Fiddler on the Roof” before directing major musicals by Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber), is finally set to come to Broadway. It will open in August at the Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The show will feature songs from the numerous musicals that Prince has produced and/or directed and incorporate new material by songwriter Jason Robert Brown (“The Last Five Years”). Prince himself will direct, with Susan Stroman (“The Producers”) serving as co-director and choreographer.

THE SHOW “Sweat”

THE DEAL “Sweat,” Lynn Nottage’s acclaimed drama about the inhabitants of an economically devastated Pennsylvania industrial town, will transfer to Broadway after its sold-out Off-Broadway run at the Public Theater, which concludes Dec. 18. It will open in March at Studio 54, where the Roundabout production of “Holiday Inn” is playing. “No piece I know captures in such brilliant and absorbing particulars the drama and fury of Americans who feel left behind in our new economy,” Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis said in a statement.
