American theatrical producer and director Harold “Hal” Prince died last month. Prince is associated with many of the best-known Broadway musical productions of the 20th century.

Over the span of his career, he garnered 21 Tony Awards, more than any other individual, including eight for directing, eight for producing the year’s Best Musical, two as Best Producer of a Musical, and three special awards.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, hosted a lecture with Mr. Prince in 2012, where he met with Mrs. Karsh and posed with a Karsh portrait of himself from 1989.
