Check out the performance below!
Kinnunen's previous Broadway credits include: The Bridges of Madison County (Carolyn), Spring Awakening (Thea). National tour: Next to Normal (Natalie u/s).

"The Prom" is the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine calls "a smart, big-hearted new musical comedy" and The New York Times declares a Critic's Pick! It's a new musical comedy about big Broadway stars, a small town, and a love that unites them all. Earlier this month, Ryan Murphy worked with GLAAD, The Trevor Project, and the Hetrick-Martin Institute to host hundreds of LGBTQ youth for a performance of the LGBTQ-themed musical. During the event, he announced that he plans to bring "The Prom" to Netflix. Last fall, a performance from the cast at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade culminated in the first-ever same-sex kiss in the event's history.
