Anyone attending the event will be given a 15-percent-off coupon on all regularly priced Virgin merchandise. "All of your favorite characters from your favorite '80s movies are at 'The Prom,' from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader, and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen," according to the announcement. "And just like on 'American Idol,' the audience decides who wins, all while rockin’ to great retro hits — from 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' to 'Karma Chameleon.' Come 'Back In Time,' to quote a Huey Lewis tune, and join the break-dance circle or just sit back and watch the '80s drama unfold."
The show began performances Sept. 10 at Webster Hall, 125 E. 11th Street in the Village. Prom at 8 PM; doors, dancing and Duran Duran from 7:30 PM. After the Prom, party all night at Webster Hall for free with each paid admission.
