The Broadway community has lost a legend, a visionary, a great friend and advocate with the passing of Hal Prince. Hal’s brilliance onstage, in rehearsal halls and from his producing office was matched by the warmth, kindness and generosity of spirit he brought to organizations whose task was the well-being of those with whom he worked and loved. @bcefa was but one of many. A founding Trustee of Broadway Cares in 1988, Hal’s great friendship and continued support for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS gave us the ability to build the foundation upon which our best work has been done for more than 30 years and will be into the future. The “Meeting with Hal Prince” auction lot was always a favorite at our Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction. Winners came back from the one-on-one conversation with Hal dazzled, cared for and feeling as if they had met more with a friend than a giant of the Broadway theatre. Although surely, Hal Prince was both. Photo by @rivka_s_katvan.
