The Prom: Details
Ryan Murphy is soon going to ensemble some of our favorite stars for the much awaited, The Prom. The project is a modernized adaptation of the Tony-nominated musical stage show, The Prom.
The show is scheduled to air on Netflix in mid-2020. The movie is going to feature Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and “thank-u next” fame Ariana Grande.
The other big-names that are going to star in the movie include James Corden, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells and Awkwafina. Ryan Murphy will be serving as an executive producer and director for the movie.

He has been very selective about his preferences. Meanwhile, he has casted Streep in the role of Dee Dee Allen. Dee is an aspiring Tony winner who collaborates with Barry Glickman (Corden) for a big musical project that’s eventually gonna flop.
What sets The Prom apart from a typical classic?
The movie further follows them onto making something big out of their failure. After the musical flop, they then team up with Trent Oliver and Angie Dickinson for a big swift in their carrers.
Angie’s character will be portrayed by Kidman while Rannells will play Trent in the Netflix reboot. During their journey, the two protagonists back a high-school Emma who’s reluctant to go to her prom because she’s a lesbian. It’s still unclear about who’s gonna excel walking in the shoes of Emma.
Meanwhile, music-queen Grande will play the daughter of a PTA president. The other roles are yet to be announced and we are enough desperate to know what’s happening inside. It was in April-when Murphy first revealed his plans to launch Tue Prom reboot.
Set on the stages of Longacre Theatre, the play has a heart-warming musical score that will leave you under spells for days. The play is hilarious but moving. Something, that’s too poigant for our generation. The play focus on LGBTQ+ rights in a time, that cursed homosexually unabashedly.
See, what Ryan Murphy has to say on his new venture:
The Prom is the most uplifting and special musicals I have ever got to on Broadway. It’s truly an original that celebrates what’s tabooed at the time. The movie lovingly preaches that LGBTQ rights are human rights. It’s set in Indiana, and guess what, that’s where I grew up, too.
We hope the movie will fetch the attention, it deserves.
