Tickets are now on sale for the return of The Awesome ‘80s Prom, the off-Broadway interactive show that’s part comedy, part dance party. Pop Rocks will be consumed, wine coolers will be opened and "The Worm" will be attempted for five Saturday night performances between May 17 and September 20 at 42West.
Written and directed by Ken Davenport, The Awesome ‘80s Prom is a blast-from-the-past party set at Wanaget High’s Senior Prom in 1989, featuring an American Idol-style contest for the titles of Prom King and Queen, and the ‘80s hits “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and more. The show initially opened off-Broadway in July 2004 at Webster Hall before transferring to The Wall in July 2013, where it ran through November of that year.
In addition to the long-running off-Broadway production, The Awesome ‘80s Prom has lit up the dance floor in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Minneapolis and Baltimore.
