Bob Martin on The Prom and how musical theatre can act as an escape from the harshness of life
Originally published on Dec. 11, 2018
Bob Martin's latest musical, The Prom, is about a troupe of washed up Broadway stars who leave New York to head to small-town Indiana. Their hope is to help a young lesbian couple who have been banned from attending their high school prom. Martin joined q's Tom Power live from New York to talk about injecting some heartfelt comedy into the production and why he believes in the healing power of musical theatre.
