ACT­ING OUT For les­bian-themed mu­si­cal ‘The Prom,’ art im­i­tates life

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

It’s cer­tainly the most prom­i­nent LGBT of­fer­ing of the sea­son – and one that could be ripped out of to­day’s head­lines. In the Al­liance Theatre world pre­miere mu­si­cal “The Prom,” a young teenage girl de­cides to bring her girl­friend to the prom. When her high school can­cels the event in­stead, all hell breaks loose – and a group of ac­tors come to town to try and change the tide. Ge­or­gia Voice caught up with out di­rec­tor and chore­og­ra­pher (and Tony win­ner) Casey Ni­cholaw, lead ac­tress Caitlin Kin­nunen and out ac­tor Brooks Ash­man­skas to find out more about the project, which be­gins pre­views this week.

Ge­or­gia Voice: How long have you been work­ing on this, Casey?
