What's missing in the musical theater is producers willing to nurture new work, raise the money and put it on.
Harold Prince

Harold Prince
I feel so much more comfortable when I'm working on material which makes other people scratch their heads and ask, 'You're going to make a musical out of that?'
Harold Prince
You could argue that 'Sweeney Todd' was romantic, if you looked closely at it, but it didn't impart that to its audiences. But it's large, and it's melodramatic, and it's a style I like to work in periodically.
Harold Prince
