The Prom may be a little cheesy and a little overly saccharine, but it entertains at a level that successfully pulls together a Golden Age musical and contemporary meta camp. Heavily reliant on casting to make everything work, Beth Leavel (playing Dee Dee Allen) and Brooks Ashmanskas (bringing Barry Glickman to life) anchor The Prom. Caitlin Kinnunen plays an earnest Emma–quite convincingly–who adds much depth to an otherwise dearth of nuance.
