Later this week Boston’s SpeakEasy Stage’s final production for the 2022/2023 season, The Prom, will open. The musical may sound familiar because Netflix recently produced a film based on the popular musical with a star-studded cast that included Meryl Streep, James Cordon, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells, Kerry Washington, Tracey Ulman, and many more.
Show Information & Tickets for The Prom
The plot centers on a young lesbian’s desire to bring her girlfriend to her high school prom and four aging Broadway actors who travel to the conservative smalltown “to help” (note my use of quotes) make it happen after the PTA opts to cancel the dance. While the musical will have your laughing at times, the topic is relevant and continues to play out around this country.
Please show Boston’s local theater scene some love by planning a fun night out to see The Prom, which will play at the Calderwood Theater from May 5 – June 3, 2023. Tickets are reasonable and there are discounted tickets available for those under the age of 25 and senior citizens. I recommend planning a fun night out with someone special or a group of friends.
