The Prom began performances at Broadway's Longacre Theatre on October 23, where the new musical is set to open on November 15. 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."
The Prom is directed by Casey Nicholaw and features music from Matthew Sklar and a book by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin. Leading the cast are Tony 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).
