When a PTA in Indiana threatens to cancel prom to prevent a same-sex couple from attending, a spunky, small-town high schooler connects with four eccentric actors from NYC. This hilarious—and timely—recent Broadway (and Netflix) hit raises serious social questions while delighting audiences. Can love win?
