Lesbian Prom Night dances its way to Broadway

She may have been banned from taking her girlfriend to her High School Prom in Indiana but now this lucky lesbian is about to trod the boards on Broadway to dance as much as she wants. 

 

‘The Prom’ is one of those ripped-from-the headlines musical “takes place in a small Indiana town, where a prom is canceled after the high school forbids a female student from bringing her girlfriend,” according to an official synopsis. “When a group of eccentric Broadway actors hear her story, they travel to the community in an earnest—if possibly misguided—attempt to correct the injustice.”

 

Written by Chad Beguelin (Aladdin), Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer), the show had such a successful world premiere last year at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre that it is now headed for the bright lights of N.Y.  

 

Opening night for The Prom is set for November 15, 2018, at an unspecified Shubert theatre,  but here is a sneak preview for those who cannot wait.
