Harold “Hal” Prince, the famed American theater producer and director who passed away July 31, left behind at least $5.2 million to a trust, according to his newly revealed will.
Prince’s will leaves all of his personal property — including theater props, memorabilia and autographed items — to his wife Judith, who is also one of two named executors of his estate.
If Prince’s wife hadn’t survived him, the theatrical items were designated to go to his children, the New York Public Library and the Museum of the City of New York, according to the will filed in the Manhattan Surrogate’s court Aug. 20 and made public Thursday.
All the rest of his assets will go into a trust, according to the will.
“I give the entire residue of my estate to the trustee of the Harold Prince Pourover Trust,” the will reads.
Prince — who worked on Broadway hits including “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Cabaret,” “West Side Story,” “Company,” and “Sweeney Todd” — had $5,194,906 in six various bank accounts meant for the trust, according to the court papers.
The total value of his trust was not listed, and the court papers didn’t specify who would inherit his money.
Prince also left behind half of the co-op shares for two East 84th Street apartments worth $1.5 million, according to the court documents.
He and his wife lived in an East 73rd Street apartment, according to the court papers.
Prince — who passed away in Reykjavik, Iceland after a brief illness at age 91 — was also survived by his two children, Charles and Daisy, as well as three grandchildren.
The “Phantom of the Opera” director worked in theater for more than 70 years and won 21 Tony Awards — more than any other person.
Charles, Daisy, and a lawyer on the case did not immediately return requests for comment. Judith could not immediately be reached for comment.
After his passing, a rep told The Post the family would throw a party rather than a funeral in his honor. The court papers designate $30,000 of his estate for funeral expenses.
“As per his wishes, there will be no funeral but there will be a celebration of his life this fall with the people he loved most, the members of the theatrical community that he was a part of for seven decades,” a rep said at the time.
