Exactly two years after casting Broadway’s The Prom in Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, Ryan Murphy released the extended trailer for his Netflix adaptation of the popular musical.
The Prom debuts on Friday, December 11th, and follows Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden), two New York-based actors in a Pickle. Their expensive new Broadway show has failed and threatens to plate both careers. Meanwhile, an Indiana high school student named Emma (Jo Ellen Pellman) is broken when she learns she can’t go to prom with her friend Alyssa (Ariana DeBose).
Dee Dee and Barry get wind of Emma’s plight and think it’s something worth fighting for – especially because it has the potential to improve her public image. So the duo makes tracks for Indiana and brings along fellow actors Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells). Unfortunately, this act of semi-sincere activism is exploding on all faces, forcing the foursome to band together and give Emma the magical prom night she deserves.
Other actors include Kerry Washington, Keegan-Michael Key, Tracey Ullman, Kevin Chamberlin, Mary Kay Place, Logan Riley, Nico Greetham, Sofia Deler and Nathaniel J. Potvin.
Several tracks from the film’s soundtrack can already be streamed. This shows that Washington has a surprisingly stunning pipe set (“Tonight Belongs To You”) and that even Streep’s considerable talent may not extend to rapping (“Wear Your Crown”).
