A hit Broadway show about a small-town lesbian couple wishing to attend the prom together had a-real-life happy ending this week, when one of its script coordinators tied the knot on stage.
Armelle Kay Harper married her partner, actress & singer Jody Kay Smith, during the curtain call for The Prom, with the event being witnessed by the production’s cast & crew and a thousand-strong audience.
One of the show’s writers,was ordained online and officiated.
The couple met via the Bumble app in 2017 and got engaged after just 19 days.
Speaking about their relationship, Ms Harper said: “We’re both really witty people, and it’s hard to find someone who can keep up. But she really got me, and she made me laugh. Plus those blue eyes. What can you do? Gorgeous.”
The happy couple intend to have a bigger ceremony in Ms Smith’s hometown next month.
