Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Kings, Queens & Everything-in-Betweens For A Day

Our high school prom was OK. Nothing too traumatic, nothing too great—simply middle-of-the-road high-school mediocrity.

So whenever we see a movie, TV show, or in this case, Broadway musical, about the big right-of-passage dance party, we tend to relive our youth vicariously. Especially because it’s always a more exciting version unfolding before us with way hotter people and far better choreography.

We first saw The Prom as a made-for-Netflix movie musical during the height of Covid lockdowns and it was just what the Dr. Fauci ordered: Light-hearted, feel-good, get-up-and-boogie silly fun.

The Broadway tour hits Dallas this week and we can’t wait.

Plus, if you book tickets to Friday’s show, you’re invited to stick around after the show for a real-life prom dance party. Bring your prom date or find somebody standing in the corner who looks like he could use a slow dance and something potent from the punch bowl (yes, the bar will be open for this high-school-inspired affair).

Of course, if you’re attending any other night, you’ll only be allowed to dance in the comfort of your seat.

Or maybe the aisles during intermission.
