Break out your glowsticks and pop open your wine coolers, because The Awesome ‘80s Prom is back! The interactive show that’s part comedy, part dance party, returns to New York beginning May 17 at 42West. It 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.
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 Awesome ‘80s Prom will light up the dance floor for five Saturday performances through September 20.
