The producers of Broadway's new musical comedy The Prom have announced a new general rush policy ahead of performances set to begin on Tuesday, October 23, at the Longacre Theatre. A limited number of $40 tickets will be made available at the box office when it opens for that day's performances. There will be a limit of two tickets per person. Tickets are subject to availability.

The Prom is directed by Casey Nicholaw and features music from Matthew Sklar and a book by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin. Starring in the cast are Tony Award nominee Brooks Ashmanskas (Something Rotten!), Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Tony nominee Christopher Sieber (Shrek the Musical), Caitlin Kinnunen (The Bridges of Madison County), Isabelle McCalla (Aladdin), Michael Potts (Jitney), Angie Schworer (The Producers), Courtenay Collins, and Josh Lamon (Groundhog Day).

The ensemble features Mary Antonini (Jesus Christ Superstar), Gabi Campo, Jerusha Cavazos, Shelby Finnie, Josh Franklin (Anything Goes), Fernell Hogan, Joomin Hwang, Sheldon Henry, David Josefsberg (Waitress), Becca Lee, Wayne Mackins, Kate Marilley (My Fair Lady), Anthony Norman, Drew Redington (Holiday Inn), Jack Sippel, Teddy Toye (Lysistrata Jones), Kalyn West, and Brittany Zeinstra.

The story 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."
