The show, by Matthew Sklar, Chad Beguelin, and Bob Martin, heads to New York following a world premiere in 2016 at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre. Casey Nicholaw (this season's Mean Girls) directs and choreographs.

Reprising their performances from the Atlanta run are 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.

Set in a small Indiana town, The Prom tells the story of a high school student banned from her prom for wanting to bring her girlfriend. When her story reaches a group of eccentric Broadway actors, the group travels to the community in an earnest (and possibly misguided) attempt to help fight the injustice.

The Cort was most recently home to the first Broadway revival of M. Butterfly, which played its final performance in December.
