Ryan Murphy has announced that he is turning Broadway Musical “The Prom” into a Netflix Film. The play premiered in 2016 and follows an Indiana teenager who wants to bring her girlfriend to her school’s prom; however, they are banned from attending but a group gets together to fight the injustice.
THE PROM is one of the most uplifting, heartfelt and special musicals I have ever seen on Broadway. It’s truly an original that celebrates the underdog and says in a loving spectacular way that LGBTQ rights are human rights. I feel a special connection to it because it’s set in Indiana, and that’s where I grew up, too.
