Six-time Emmy Award winner Ryan Murphy (The Boys in the Band, “American Horror Story”) announced today on Instagram that he will host a special performance of The Prom on April 9th! The evening will benefit to benefit Hetrick Martin, GLAAD and The Trevor Project.

"I saw the hilarious and moving new Broadway musical comedy @theprommusical and was so inspired by the story of an incredibly courageous girl facing injustice in a small town and the larger-than-life Broadway celebrities who take up her cause that I want to share the love with my friends and some very special LGBTQ youth who have been affected by similar injustices. On Tuesday, April 9, I will host a special performance of THE PROM to benefit @hetrickmartin, @GLAAD and @trevorproject at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. Hope to see you there.
