The Prom Announces National Tour and Future Licensing Opportunities
The musical is running at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

Directed by Casey Nicholaw, The Prom is described as follows: "Emma becomes an instant outcast, and a national headline, when her high school cancels the prom rather than let her attend with her girlfriend. Sensing a chance to correct an injustice, and maybe get some good publicity along the way, a group of fading celebrities takes up the cause, and invades Emma's small Indiana town. But their bumbling attempts at social activism make the situation far worse than they, or Emma, could have ever imagined."
The production features music by Matthew Sklar, a book by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, and lyrics by Beguelin. Leading the cast of the Broadway run are are Brooks Ashmanskas, Beth Leavel, Christopher Sieber, Caitlin Kinnunen, Isabelle McCalla, Michael Potts, Angie Schworer, Courtenay Collins, and Josh Lamon.
