‘The Prom’: First Look at Kerry Washington, Keegan-Michael Key and Ariana DeBose in Newly Released Trailer!
Netflix has released the official trailer for its upcoming musical The Prom starring Kerry Washington, Keegan-Michael Key, James Corden, Ariana DeBose, Andrew Rannells, and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman. The cast is led by Hollywood’s heavyweights – Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman.
Here is the official synopsis:
Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (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 (Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Key), the head of the PTA (Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (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 (Kidman) and Trent (Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome finds their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.
The Prom is a film adaptation of a 2018 award-winning, Tony-nominated Broadway musical. The film is directed by Ryan Murphy (Hollywood) with a screenplay by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin.
Watch the trailer below. Avaialble on Netflix December 11, 2020.
