From Off-Broadway, Tony-nominated composer
Actors and audience interact in a 1950's high school. The lunatic plot, reminiscent of a bad drive in movie, involves competition for prom queen, an alien invader, a science student who turns his right arm into a hamburger, murders and other mayhem, all at an accelerating pace that overtakes all with hilarity.
PROM QUEENS UNCHAINED originated at the historic Village Gate Theatre in New York City in 1991. Produced by GH Inc.. it has enjoyed numerous productions around the country and abroad.
"Nonstop silliness...The show grows steadily loopier until it becomes permanently and deliriously unhinged." - The New York Times
"Genuinely hilarious... A sure fire crowd pleaser." - New York Post
"Explodes on and off the stage with raucous cheerfulness." - United Press International
"A zany, exuberant, take no prisoners assault on the 1950s in general and high school in particular that makes Grease and Bye Bye Birdieseem rather pale." - Chicago Tribune
"Has more subplots per square minute than any other show and each of them is a frolic... A hilarious spoof." - Back Stage
