Overseeing an array of investments ranging from real estate to film production, Norton Herrick guides the Herrick Company, Inc., as CEO and chairman. Norton Herrick has invested in a number of successful Broadway productions, including “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark,” “Dolly Parton’s 9 TO 5: The Musical,” and the 2013 revival of “Pippin.” In addition to pursuing investments, Norton Herrick supports a number of charitable organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The current revival of Pippin, which recounts the story of the young son of French ruler Charlemagne, reached Broadway following a critically lauded run at Harvard University. The production achieved four Tony Awards, with its signature song performed on the live CBS telecast of the awards in New York. Among the awards the production received was the coveted Tony for “best revival of a musical.” Diane Paulus received her Tony for “best direction of a musical,” while Patina Miller won for “best performance in a musical by a leading actress.” The most remarkable Tony was reserved for 66-year-old Andrea Martin, who took on the role of Pippin’s grandmother Berthe and astounded the audiences nightly with acrobatic stunts.
