Broadway’s Caitlin Kinnunen, star of the musical comedy The Prom, joined “BUILD Brunch” hosts Shannon Coffey, Brittany Jones-Cooper, Lukas Thimm, and Nicole Pellegrino on April 12. Caitlin shares what it is like to be a part of this positive and hopeful musical, as well as the reaction from fans of the show. “We get a lot of young adults and kids reaching out to us on social media and even in person at the stage door, and they just, they feel seen and feel heard and represented like they haven’t before.”

Caitlin also discusses how she strives to be honest about her life on social media, including opening up about dating a woman.

Nicole joined Nerds and Beyond in 2019 and is excited to finally get back into writing. As a life-long nerdy fangirl from New Jersey, she loves Supernatural and its fandom as well as anything Wayward, Kings of Con, Lucifer, Wynonna Earp, and the musical Bandstand. She’s constantly listening to Louden Swain, The Station Breaks, Briana Buckmaster, The Avett Brothers, The Mots Nouveaux, or any of Aaron Mahnke’s podcasts. When she’s not [procrastinating] on Twitter, you can usually find her binging Netflix with her dog, reading fanfic, or daydreaming about being back in Arizona or Disney World!
