Last week, a new Broadway musical made history during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when actors Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla shared a kiss on live television, which appears to be the first same-sex kiss in the parade’s history.
“The Prom” is currently running at the Longacre Theatre. Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs the show, which features a book by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, music by Matthew Sklar, and lyrics by Beguelin.
While the show was in rehearsals, we sat down with actors Angie Schworer and Christopher Sieber. [Bios below.]
Masterworks Broadway will release the cast recording digitally on December 14 and on CD on January 11.
