About The Prom

Everyone’s invited to the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine calls “smart and big-hearted” and The New York Times declares a Critic’s Pick! It’s a new musical comedy about big Broadway stars, a small town, and a love that unites them all. Billboard cheers, “The Prom is Hairspray meets Dear Evan Hansen!” Variety raves, “It’s so full of happiness that you think your heart is about to burst.” And The Hollywood Reporter cheers, “It’s comic gold!”

More information about The Prom

This is not your average school dance. Featuring a book by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin, music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Beguelin, “The Prom” is a modern musical about the power of love, music, and community. Inspired by true events — most notably, the 2010 controversy in which a Mississippi high school canceled the prom when 18-year-old Constance McMillen planned to take her girlfriend — the musical turns the spotlight on a young lesbian love story.

Emma is dating closeted cheerleader Alyssa and plans to finally go public with their relationship at the prom, but her classmates and friends are trying to stand in their way. When the prom gets canceled and the story makes headlines, a group of veteran Broadway performers come to the rescue. After finding a news article about the controversy, they set out to invade the conservative town and save the day.

Recommended for 10 + (Some adult language.) Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

What to watch for

“The Prom” pulls from multiple stories of same-sex discrimination in high schools for inspiration — and then throws in a Broadway-style plot twist.

Caitlin Kinnunen, who stars as Emma, was home-schooled, so she never went to a prom before “The Prom.”

“The Prom” comes complete with inside jokes for Broadway enthusiasts. Look out for references to “Carrie,” Fosse, and Bernadette Peters, as well as a costume homage to designer William Ivey Long.
