Netflix Debuts Star-Studded Trailer for Ryan Murphy's 'The Prom' - Watch!

The Prom is coming!

The upcoming Ryan Murphy movie, which is heading to Netflix, debuted a trailer on Thursday (November 26).

The movie stars Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Jo Ellen Pellman, Ariana Debose, Tracey Ullman, Kevin Chamberlin, Mary Kay Place, Nico Greetham, Logan Riley, Nathaniel J. Potvin, Sofia Deler and Kerry Washington.

Here’s a plot summary: 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 find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

The Prom is the film adaptation of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, and hits select theaters in December and on Netflix on December 11.

Broadway Stars Come Together in Times Square, Shutdown to Extend to Mid-2021

So many great Broadway stars came together in New York City this week to film a performance to give people hope for the return of live theater!

Bernadette Peters and Andrew Rannells were among the stars who participated in NYCNext’s A Moment for Broadway event on Wednesday (October 7) in NYC’s Times Square.

Also in attendance were Gavin Creel, Telly Leung, Carolee Carmello, Norm Lewis, Javier Munoz, Joel Grey, Eden Espinosa, Sierra Boggess, Kate Baldwin, Stark Sands, Jennifer Damiano, Ari’el Stachel, Andrea Burns, among others.

Some unfortunate news was just revealed about Broadway.

NBC New York is reporting that the Broadway League is going to announce on Friday that Broadway will not return until May 30, 2021, at the earliest.

Broadway shows have been shut down since March 13, 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The shutdown was supposed to end in January 2021, but now will be extended as the pandemic is still not under control and it’s not safe for thousands of people to sit in an indoor theater together.

The productions that come back to Broadway will return across a series of rolling dates.

Andrew Rannells Talks About His 'Showmance' with Tuc Watkins & How They Fell in Love

Andrew Rannells stars in the new Netflix movie The Boys in the Band alongside his real-life boyfriend Tuc Watkins and he’s opening up about how they fell in love while working together!

The two actors previously starred in the Broadway production of The Boys in the Band in 2018 and they reprised their roles for the movie.

“It’s called a show-mance. It’s when you fall in love during a show,” Andrew said while appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show. “We met and I felt like such a lazy actor that I fell in love with my co-star. I was like this is so cliché.”

He added, “Also have you seen him? He’s very attractive. What was I supposed to do? Not date him? It was strange. Like the first time we kissed it was for work… but it was weird, it was like, Oh we are getting paid to do this.”

See the photos of Andrew and Tuc showing off their hot bodies during a beach day with the kids!

Netflix's 'Boys in the Band' Trailer Just Debuted - Watch Here!

The first trailer for The Boys in the Band is here!

Ryan Murphy has produced the movie version of the Broadway play, for which he won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play last year.

Here’s a synopsis: In 1968 New York City – when being gay was still considered to be best kept behind closed doors – a group of friends gather for a raucous birthday party hosted by Michael (Jim Parsons), a screenwriter who spends and drinks too much, in honor of the sharp-dressed and sharp-tongued Harold (Zachary Quinto). Other partygoers include Donald (Matt Bomer), Michael’s former flame, now mired in self-analysis; Larry (Andrew Rannells), a randy commercial artist living with Hank (Tuc Watkins), a school teacher who has just left his wife; Bernard (Michael Benjamin Washington), a librarian tiptoeing around fraught codes of friendship alongside Emory (Robin de Jesús), a decorator who never holds back; and a guileless hustler (Charlie Carver), hired to be Harold’s gift for the night. What begins as an evening of drinks and laughs gets upended when Alan (Brian Hutchison), Michael’s straight-laced college roommate, shows up unexpectedly and each man is challenged to confront long-buried truths that threaten the foundation of the group’s tight bond.

Look out for the film on Netflix on September 30, 2020.
