Exclusive Photos! Go Backstage at Broadway's Hit Musical Comedy The Prom
Photographer Jenny Anderson (who shot our Classic New York Films and our Broadway Replacement Stars series) brings BroadwayBox backstage for an exclusive series capturing Broadway companies getting ready to take the stage. Most recently, Jenny went backstage at Broadway's Longacre Theatre, home to our favorite musical of 2018, Broadway's acclaimed, new musical comedy The Prom. Scroll on to see this incredible company preparing to bring joy and laughter to Broadway audiences.
Let’s kick it off with The Prom queen herself, Tony winner Beth Leavel, whose performance as Dee Dee Allen must be seen to be believed.
Then we head over to the dressing room of two-time Tony nominee Christopher Sieber, who lands laugh after laugh as Trent Oliver.
Next stop is Caitlin Kinnunen’s dressing room. The Spring Awakening and Bridges of Madison County alum stars as Emma, the teenage lesbian from Indiana at the center of The Prom.
This dressing room is home to Caitlin, Isabelle McCalla, and Courtenay Collins…so obviously it’s the place to be pre-show.
Isabelle McCalla stars as the picture perfect Alyssa Greene, Emma’s closeted girlfriend caught at the crossroads.
Atlanta actress Courtenay Collins makes her Broadway debut as the close-minded Mrs. Greene in The Prom.
