Netflix’s musical comedy directed by Ryan Murphy, based on the Broadway musical of the same name by Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin, and Matthew Sklar. The story follows a troupe of self-obsessed theater stars, Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden), whose careers have flatlined. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman), has been banned from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose). That’s when Dee Dee, Barry, Angie Dickinson (Nicole Kidman), and Trent Oliver (Andrew Rannells), another pair of actors whose careers need lifting, decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images. 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.
