When we saw that the line wrapped around the building before the doors had even opened, we knew the wait would be long. The fact that the pre-reserved tickets were booked up until the end of May was an indicator that The Broad was a popular place. The website's claim of a thirty minute wait time was...

Music has certainly always had the ability to incite emotion and change lives, but perhaps no song has as much power over the junior class as "We Didn't Start the Fire" by the famous Billy Joel.

Prom gets more than its fair share of hype. The time and money that go into the preparation of making it a picture-perfect night tend to overshadow what happens just hours after the final song is played. But not this year.
