Meryl Streep loudly demands LGBT+ rights in glittering first trailer for Ryan Murphy’s lesbian musical epic The Prom​

The Prom Meryl Streep


The Prom trailer has finally been unleashed by Netflix, and to say that we’re excited would be an understatement.
The new adaptation of the Broadway musical, directed by legendary queer creator Ryan Murphy, revolves around a group of out-of-work actors who decide to come to the aid of a lesbian high-school student who is denied the chance to bring a female date to her prom.

In the trailer, Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) announces: “We have come to this community on behalf of a young girl,” referring to student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman).
The four actors travel to the small Midwestern town of Edgewater, Indiana, after seeing a news report about Emma’s experience and attempt to win her the chance to bring her girlfriend to the prom.
But their actions are not exactly selfless – Dee Dee is hopeful that her goodwill could help kickstart her career and undo the public perception that she is a diva.

The Prom trailer sees Meryl Streep unleashes all of the camp excess we need right now.​

Judging by the The Prom’s trailer, it looks like Meryl Streep will be unleashing a truly iconic performance, bringing some much-needed camp excess to this hellscape of a year.
The film, which also stars Andrew Rannels, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Tracey Ullman and, eh… James Cordon, looks like it will be the festive, celebratory musical extravaganza we all so desperately need in 2020.

The Prom debuted in Atlanta in 2016 before it moved to Broadway in 2018. It opened to critical acclaim, and the following year, Murphy announced that he would be adapting the musical for Netflix.
The film’s cast was announced in June 2019, and quickly sent queer fans into a frenzy at the thoughts of true Hollywood icons assembling to fight for LGBT+ rights on screen.
In September, Murphy announced that filming had wrapped despite the coronavirus pandemic. He heaped praise on the cast, saying they “buckled up and finished shooting during COVID so we could give everybody an inspirational aspirations story that we all need right now”.
The Prom will be released on Netflix December 11.

oh, lol, I actually went to the Broadway musical for this with friends (don't ask why)

Pretty cliche sorta "outsider girl gets bullied and magical whatevers try to help" type thing. I think this was based on a news event I heard about fucking years ago, back in 2014/5. It's like a retarded Lesbian Fairly Oddparents. They made a shitty dig at FOX News in the musical, the main "antagonist" is a typical 2000's era Republican Karen, and they also for some reason made a dig at PBS and how boring looking for real information on subject matters are. I forgot what it was, but I remember one of my friends got really irked at the PBS dig. Weird shit, but this is pretty much very derivative propaganda with a lot of surprisingly classless jokes. In the second half of the musical, loads of toilet humor arrive with the shitty emotional moments.

The prom means jack shit just so you know. I stayed for five minutes, was turned off by the garbage music and lack of booze that would have made the other cringy teens more tolerable. Fucked off and went to a movie instead. Better use of my time.

So you have an already meaningless event with messages that became meaningless by 2015. I swear, the woke boomers in hollywood don't know shit about how tired most of the public is of this nonsense. This includes gay people that would rather live honest, decent lives instead of taking pandering handouts from the world's campiest hack.

They keep trying to make the prom a thing over here, I constantly told my school's planning committee to fuck off and they got arsey about it. In the end I just told them straight up, you didn't want me around for the past 4 years, why do you want me for this party? That shut them up.

I had a much better time at home with a curry, some shit lagers I snuck and Snake Eater.
