Everyone deserves a chance to celebrate.
Directed by Ryan Murphy, The Prom is the spectacular, big-hearted film adaptation of the award-winning, Tony-nominated Broadway musical.
Watch the trailer here:
Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (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.
In small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak. Despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the PTA head (Kerry Washington) bans her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose).
Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect PR solution to resurrect their public images. They hit the road with Angie (Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. The foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night to truly celebrate who she is.
