The Prom, Ryan Murphy’s movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical has recently released its official trailer which features a charming all-star cast.
Based on the 2018 Broadway musical, with an original concept from Jack Viertel and music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Chad Beguelin, the movie follows four Broadway actors who travel to a town in Indiana town so they can help a gay teenager who is not allowed to bring her girlfriend to her high school prom.
The film stars no less than Hollywood bigwigs from Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington to James Corben.
Written by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin, The Prom is the first movie in Murphy’s 2018 multi-million-dollar deal with Netflix.
About The Prom:
Dee Dee Allen (three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (Tony Award winner James Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers.
Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the head of the PTA (Kerry Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose).
When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.
