Publisher's Summary

An honest, laugh-out-loud, feel-good novel inspired by the Tony-nominated musical The Prom, read by members of the original Broadway cast!

Seventeen-year-old Emma Nolan wants only one thing before she graduates: to dance with her girlfriend at the senior prom. But in her small town of Edgewater, Indiana, that's like asking for the moon.

Alyssa Greene is her high school's "it" girl: popular, head of the student council, and daughter of the PTA president. She also has a secret. She's been dating Emma for the last year and a half.

When word gets out that Emma plans to bring a girl as her date, it stirs a community-wide uproar that spirals out of control. Now, the PTA, led by Alyssa's mother, is threatening to cancel the prom altogether.

Enter Barry Glickman and Dee Dee Allen, two Broadway stars who decide to take up the cause and get a little publicity along the way. But when they arrive in Indiana to fight on Emma's behalf, their good intentions go quickly south.

Between Emma facing the fray head-on, Alyssa wavering about coming out, and Barry and Dee Dee basking in all the attention, it's the perfect prom storm. Only when this unlikely group comes together do they realize that love is always worth fighting for.

Read by Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla, with Beth Leavel, Joshua Lamon, and Tara Sands. Includes an interview of Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin, and Matthew Sklar from the musical’s creative team conducted by cast member Joshua Lamon.

Amazing performance, okay writing

So the performance is definitely the best part of this audiobook. The writing is odd, and the flow is not always the best, but the narrators makes it way better.

The musical is also so much better, and I highly recommend checking it out if you're interested in this story. But if you want a story about 2 lesbians with a happy ending, this is not the worst book you can listen to.

AMAZING

Honestly I was surprised by how much I liked this, I am a huge fan of both the stage production of The Prom and the Netflix movie. This book definitely gave some fanfic vibes but in a good way. I love how you can go in depth on what Emma and Alysa were feeling at certain parts of the plot. It is based on the musical so obviously it isn’t the exact same story line but it honestly feels more organized and shows more of the Emma and Alysa as a couple which I loved. I loved hearing the back story on where it all began for the two of them since it was not really brought up in the musical. We are still given the remarkable moments that make the musical (and book) so special!! I also would like to mention how AMAZING Caitlin and Isabelle were, when I first heard them I totally geeked out!!!!! Over all it was such an amazing 6 hours and would totally recommend to everyone!!

Love The Prom

This is a wonderful story read by some of the original Broadway Actors of The Prom. This version of The Prom takes a much closer look at Emma and Alyssa's history and relationship. This audiobook incorporates both the original Broadway actors Caitlin Kinnunen and Izzy McCalla reprising their roles as Emma and Alyssa. Along with some music and Josh Lamon and Beth Leavel from the original Broadway cast makes this story come alive. If you have seen the play or listen to the original broadway recording you will love this audiobook. For anyone who has not seen or listen to the musical, this story will touch your heart and bring joy and hope during these difficult times. Listen, Love and Enjoy.

I will cherish this musical and this story forever

As if the story wasn't great enough in the original play, getting this in-depth version focused on Emma and Alyssa and being narrated by them brought me to tears several times. There is so much emotion and truth in this story that works so well in every medium because the essence of it, regardless of the medium, will always be so pure and funny while remaining realistic. I will probably never relate to any character as much as I relate to Emma and Alyssa and I will always cherish this play and this book.
