The Prom -- Broadway

The Prom musical tickets, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Prom – the smash-hit, award-winning Broadway musical that became a hit Netflix movie, is rumoured to be coming to London.

This hilarious Broadway musical comedy, which won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, is a show about big Broadway stars, a small town, and a love that unites them all.

The stage musical was also turned into a hit Netflix TV movie by Ryan Murphy starring Meryl Streep, James Corden and Nicole Kidman.

What is The Prom about?

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.

Who wrote The Prom?

The Prom features a book by Tony Award® winner Bob Martin (Elf, The Drowsy Chaperone) and Tony Award® nominee Chad Beguelin (Aladdin), music by Tony Award® nominee Matthew Sklar (Elf the Musical) and lyrics by Tony Award® nominee Chad Beguelin.

The original Broadway version was directed and choreographed by Tony Award® winner Casey Nicholaw (Aladdin, Mean Girls).
