Meryl Streep's new role in the adaptation of a Broadway musical has the 71-year-old award-winning actress looking ready for the prom and almost unrecognizable.


Red suits the Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep, as seen in the brand new locks that helped transform her into her latest role in the movie adaptation of the Broadway musical, "The Prom."

Ryan Murphy adapted the musical to film, and he shared a picture of the cast on Monday as a teaser to his fans, and it surely is a star-studded lineup.

"The American Horror Story" creator had the star-studded cast come together for the cute picture he shared of them on social media.

Smiling back at the camera, James Corden, Jo Ellen Pellman, Kevin Chamberlin, Ariana DeBose, Keegan-Michael Key, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells, and Kerry Washington were all easy to pick out, but it took a second glance to identify Meryl Streep.




In the picture, the 54-year-old shared, Streep looked striking with red hair, hoop earrings, and the added red in her shawl and lipstick. Excited about their project, Murphy gave more information in the caption.

"Meet the incredible icon-packed cast of Netflix's THE PROM," Murphy wrote. "A group of true troopers who buckled up and finished shooting during COVID so we could give everybody an inspirational aspirational story that we all need right now."

Last year, the musical made history when the same-sex kiss shared during the final scene was televised on the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" - a first.


Lead actresses Isabelle McCalla and Caitlin Kinnunen performed their finale to "Time to Dance," which ended with a passionate smooch. The musical ended up earning a total of seven Tony nominations.



Over the course of her career, Streep rocked just about every hair color due to her acting roles. In 1969, Streep went with a deep red-brown as seen in "The Lieutenant's Wife," followed by her bottle-blond look in "Death Becomes Her" in the early 1990s.

In "The Bridges of Madison County," Streep went with the country look and black hair, which changed again to blond in the popular flick "The Devil Wears Prada." However, its the first time that the actress's hair shined quite as bright.

Last month, fellow celebrity Sharon Osbourne also stunned with her new look. While the talk show host recently decided to embrace her natural beauty more, she looked almost unrecognizable in a recent update.

The celeb had chopped off all her hair, and additionally, she kept her face makeup-free, which had fans do a double-take when she posted a selfie taken with a parrot.
