Sony Masterworks has released Tonight Belongs to You, the first single from Netflix’s upcoming big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom.
Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee,Hollywood), the film adaptation of Bob Martin, Chad Beguelin, and Matthew Sklar’s musical will be heading to Netflix on the 11th December.
Having made its debut in the film’s teaser trailer, Tonight Belongs To You is the first single to be released from the film soundtrack which is set to be released later this year.
The song features vocals from some of the star-studded cast that includes Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Keyb, as well as newcomers Jo Ellen Pellman and Ariana DeBose.
Dee Dee Allen (three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (Tony Award winner 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. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the head of the PTA (Kerry Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana 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 (Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift.
