Movie trailer for Broadway’s “The Prom” released

Playbill reports:

The teaser trailer for The Prom on Netflix has dropped—and it’s full of “Zazz” with stars Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Andrew Rannells, and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman. As previously announced, the film adaptation of the Tony-nominated musical debuts December 11 on the streaming giant.

Directed by Ryan Murphy, the movie features Streep as Dee Dee Allen, Kidman as Angie Dickinson, Corden as Barry Glickman, Rannells as Trent Oliver, Ariana DeBose as Alyssa Greene, Keegan-Michael Key as Mr. Hawkins, Kerry Washington as Mrs. Greene, and Kevin Chamberlin as Sheldon Saperstein.

This definitely looks like a lot of fun!
