Two tracks are now available to stream and download from the new Broadway musical The Prom, which arrived on Broadway October 23 at the Longacre Theatre, where it will officially open November 15.
The album is set for digital release December 14 and physical release January 11, 2019, from Sony Masterworks Broadway. The released tracks include “The Lady’s Improving” (featuring Beth Leavel) and “Barry Is Going to Prom” (featuring Brooks Ashmanskas). The tracks can be heard on all major streaming platforms today.
Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs the show, which features a book by his Aladdin collaborator, Chad Beguelin, and Drowsy Chaperone Tony winner Bob Martin, with music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Beguelin.
The musical tells the story of an Indiana high schooler barred from bringing her girlfriend to the prom—and the group of eccentric Broadway folk who infiltrate the town in an earnest, misguided attempt to fight the injustice.
Reprising their performances from the 2016 Atlanta world premiere are Tony winner Leavel, Tony nominees Christopher Sieber and Ashmanskas, Caitlin Kinnunen, Isabelle McCalla, Angie Schworer, Josh Lamon, and Courtenay Collins. Joining them for the Broadway bow is Michael Potts.
Rounding out the ensemble are Mary Antonini, Courtney Balan, Gabi Campo, Jerusha Cavazos, Shelby Finnie, Josh Franklin, Fernell Hogan, Joomin Hwang, Sheldon Henry, David Josefsberg, Becca Lee, Wayne Mackins, Kate Marilley, Vasthy Mompoint, Anthony Norman, Drew Redington, Jack Sippel, Teddy Toye, Kalyn West, and Brittany Zeinstra.
