Also laid in is an card from the Beverly Hills Hotel, inscribed (presumably to Fryer also): "Sun AM / Last night was special! / Love, H." With forewords by Prince and Stephen Sondheim. Harold Prince produced many of the best-known Broadway musical productions of the past half-century, including "Cabaret" (1966), "Company" (1970), "A Little Night Music" (1973), and "Sweeney Todd" (1979). He also directed two of Andrew Llloyd Webber's best-known musicals, "Evita" and "The Phantom of the Opera." Over time he has garnered twenty-one Tony Awards, more than any other individual, including eight for directing, eight for producing, and three special awards. Robert Fryer staged some of Broadway's most popular productions from the 1950s to the 1980s, starting in 1951 as a co-producer, with George Abbott, for "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." He went on to produce such hits as "Wonderful Town" (1958), "Sweet Charity" (1966), "Chicago" (1975), and "Merrily We Roll Along" (1981). His Broadway shows won a total of 37 Tony Awards. Fryer also produced a number of well-known films, including "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" (1969), "The Boys from Brazil" (1978), and "The Shining" (1980).Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket. A tremendous association between two of the most important figures in twentieth-century American theatre. N° de ref. de la librería 109235
