User reviews on Prince Music Theater
According to some essay writing that I have read, Prince Music Theater was founded in 1984 as the American Music Theater Festival by Marjorie Samoff, Eric Salzman and Ron Kaiserman. For over 15 years AMTF performed in various venues throughout Philadelphia. In March 1999, AMTF moved into the renovated Midtown Theater and changed its name in honor of Harold Prince, the legendary Broadway producer and director.
In late May 2009, the Prince Music Theater Building appeared on a Philadelphia Sheriff's Department sale list. This cemented longtime rumors of the organization's decline. It was removed quickly, as the company filed a lawsuit against its mortgage holder, TD Bank. On July 27, 2009, a blog posting appeared from noted theater reviewer Wendy Rosenfield, mentioning that the Prince was closing. However, the theater's Producing Director stated that this was not true. The future of Prince remains uncertain.
