Finally got to watch Ovation TV's Mr. Prince documentary which debuted on the cable channel last weekend just before the Tony Awards were handed out.
The documentary, which has been produced and directed by Sara Feldmann Sheehan and Bobby Sheehan, covers Prince's career from its beginnings to the present day. The first two segments of the show concentrate The Phantom of the Opera (it's fascinating watching him give notes to the Broadway company earlier this year) and Sweeney Todd (some great footage of productions other than the original Broadway cast). "Prince" then looks backward to his early work and forward – to the new "Paradise" musical that he producing. This latter segment really is the jewel in the documentary. There are clips of his meetings with the show's designers and clips of Kate Baldwin and Shuler Hensley rehearsing a number from the show.
If you've not caught Mr. Prince it will be shown on Ovation a number of times on Saturday, June 13 alongside other Broadway-related fare, such as a documentary about the making of "Phantom" and the movie versions of Cabaret and A Chorus Line.
