Tonight we dim the lights of our marquees in memory of the legendary Hal Prince, who died this morning at the age of 91.
This picture was taken moments before I had the I-cannot-believe-what-is-happening joy of sitting next to Hal in his rehearsal room for a run of his musical retrospective Prince of Broadway.
Sitting beside the visionary of Cabaret, Company, Follies, Sweeney Todd, Evita, Phantom and so many more as songs from those seminal pieces I have loved my whole life were performed just a few feet in front of us.

time for a thread on this. my policy: bring your food. bring your drinks. sleep if you cannot possibly stay awake any longer. leave if you must & arrive when you can. this policy was derived almost 30 yrs ago, when i was an undergrad at @UWaterloo
we had co-op at @uwaterloo. for those who don't know it, this is basically a paid internship. you go to school for 4 mos, you work for 4 mos. it also means 15-30 job interviews per term were common. we'd have to miss class. leave class early. arrive late.
missing interviews in old "needless hell" was a serious no-no. sometimes interviews would run late. we'd run late. expected to do our reading, assignments, homework, etc. & go to interviews.
