The dance is still on—just at a different venue. The Broadway-bound musical comedy The Prom has found a new theatre. Performances will begin October 23 as scheduled, but now at the Longacre Theatre instead of the Cort.
Opening night is still set for November 15.
The Longacre is currently home to A Bronx Tale, which recently announced it will play its final performance August 5.
Ticketholders will be notified directly of the move and will be seated in comparable or identical locations at the new venue. The two theatres have roughly the same number of seats (both just shy of 1,100) as well as a mezzanine and balcony above orchestra level.
The musical, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, 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 will be Tony winner Beth Leavel, Tony nominees Christopher Sieber and Brooks Ashmanskas, Caitlin Kinnunen, Isabelle McCalla, Angie Schworer, Josh Lamon, and Courtenay Collins. Joining them for the Broadway bow is Michael Potts.
