Chanhassen Dinner Theater Delivers Big Again!!!
“The Prom”, now showing at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater, is a delightful, heartwarming, and entertaining musical. The show follows four down and out Broadway stars who want to find a good cause to help put them back in the spotlight. As a result, they head to a small Indiana town to help a student get her chance to attend prom with her girlfriend The characters and their relationships are genuine, and the cast brings these characters to life through their incredible singing and dancing skills. The show does an excellent job of addressing the issue of lesbian relationships, and the acceptance and understanding of those relationships by both the school and the town. To me its overall message was to show that love is love and should be celebrated, no matter what. Mission accomplished. The show does a great job of portraying the relationship in a positive realistic manner without ever being preachy. It is refreshing to see a show that can be both amazingly entertaining and progressive. The Chanhassen has another big hit on their hands and you should make arrangements to see it now before it’s too late.
