Manhattan Theatre Club announced that it will honor Tony Award-winning director and producer Harold Prince at its 2017 fall benefit on Monday, October 23, at 583 Park Avenue.

Prince, described as "a longtime friend to Manhattan Theatre Club," is the subject of the new Broadway musical Prince of Broadway, which recounts his illustrious career helping shepherd shows like Company, Follies, Sweeney Todd, She Loves Me, Cabaret, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, and many other shows to the stage.

Prince of Broadway, which features words and music from many of the shows that have earned Prince his record 21 Tony Awards, has a book by two-time Tony Award nominee David Thompson (The Scottsboro Boys), new songs, arrangements, orchestration, and music supervision by three-time Tony winner Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County), codirection and choreography by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman (Bullets Over Broadway), and direction by Prince himself.
