‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical Is Happening!
Have you heard? The iconic film The Devil Wears Prada just scored a musical adaptation!
The 2006 comedy-drama starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep—which was based off Lauren Weisberger's best-selling novel of the same name—will have its pre-Broadway run at Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre from July 14 to August 16, 2020.
The stage version's official summary states, "Andy, an ambitious young writer in New York City, lands a job at a prestigious magazine. Trying to survive under her stylish yet terrifying boss, she finds herself caught between the dreams she thought she wanted, and the cost of what that reality brings. A joyous, funny, and — of course — ultraglamorous story about navigating life’s runway to discover where you’re meant to be, The Devil Wears Prada is a new musical that gives the hit film a fabulously fresh makeover. Sometimes the best fashion statements are sung."
Casting for the production has yet to be announced, but Elton John has already signed up to write the music for the show which will be directed by Tony winner Anna D. Shapiro.
