The Prom 2020

The Prom is a big-hearted and hilarious musical comedy about acceptance and bravery in the face of adversity. Set to excellent dancing and singing, it’s the story of a troupe of Broadway actors who have all found themselves in need of a publicity boost and decide to champion the case of a teenager named Emma to help them achieve it.

Emma’s high school in Indiana canceled prom because she asked if she could attend with her girlfriend. With the help of a caring teacher named Mr. Hawkins, Emma and the actors come up with all kinds of strategies to get Emma the prom she deserves and to change the attitudes of a narrow-minded and fearful town.

    Critical Acclaim

    Rave reviews proceeded The Prom’s debut on Broadway in October 2018. The New York Times saying, “It makes you believe in musical comedy again!” and Variety stating, “This original musical has laughs, tears, joy and dazzling star-turns in a clash-of-cultures hoot that earns a big Broadway corsage,” are just a sampling of the praise. The show was also named as the first New York Times Critic Pick for a Broadway musical of 2018-19.

    Cultural Significance

    The original concept of the musical by Jack Viertel was undoubtedly influenced by the 2010 case of the Itawamba County School District prom controversy in which a high school girl experienced almost the exact same responses from her school and community in Mississippi when she asked to bring her girlfriend to prom. Unfortunately, unlike Emma in The Prom, she did not have the help of four quirky and caring actors. This situation and the accompanying support by the ACLU set a precedent for schools across the country to practice inclusivity and acceptance.

    Audience members describe the show as “thought-provoking”, “perfect in this current climate”, and having a “meaningful theme of tolerance” and “relevant storyline”.

    Seating Recommendations

    The Prom takes place in the historic Longacre Theatre in New York’s theater district. The beautiful neoclassical French building supposedly has a curse on it because the theater’s owner, Harry Frazee, also owned the Red Sox and sold Babe Ruth’s contract to New York Yankees to fund his theater pursuits.

    While there are generally no bad seats in the house, the first row of the Mezzanine has a brass bar bisecting your view, so best to stay away.

    For the best seats with the best price-points, check out Rows C-F in the Center Mezzanine or Rows F-O in the Center Orchestra. However, these sell out fast, so make your move today!.
