The musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada is set to make its pre-Broadway debut at Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre on July 14, 2020.
According to THR, the stage version of the film which explores the cutthroat fashion world of Manhattan, as exemplified in the relationship between the ambitious young writer Andy and her hard-to-please boss, magazine editor Miranda Priestly, will be directed by Tony winner Anna D. Shapiro.
Per the outlet:
The show will remain in the Windy City though Aug. 16, 2020. The engagement will follow that of Britney Spears’ upcoming musical, Once Upon a One More Time — a feminist take on classic fairy tales that features songs from the pop superstar’s extensive catalog — which is set to end its pre-Broadway run at the Nederlander on May 17, 2020.
Casting and dates for a Broadway run of Devil Wears Prada have not yet been announced. The show features music by Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub and a book by Paul Rudnick. Nadia DiGiallonardo serves as musical supervisor, while casting is by Stephen Kopel.
The Devil Wears Prada is produced by Kevin McCollum and Rocket Entertainment and presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.
We can’t wait!
