Broadway-Bound THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, with music by Sir Elton John (Disney’s The Lion King, Billy Elliot), lyrics by Shaina Taub (Twelfth Night at the Public Theatre), and book by Paul Rudnick and Kate Wetherhead will play a pre-Broadway, world premiere engagement July 19, 2022 – August 21, 2022, at Broadway In Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre. The company is led by Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), music supervisor Nadia DiGiallonardo (WaitressPippin), and choreographer James Alsop (Beyoncé).

The Devil Wears Prada is based on Lauren Weisberger‘s best-selling 2003 novel and the 2006 blockbuster film from Fox 2000 Pictures. The musical is produced by Kevin McCollum and Rocket Entertainment and presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.

Andy, an ambitious young writer in New York City, lands a job at Runway, a prestigious fashion magazine. Trying to survive under her stylish yet terrifying boss, Miranda Priestly, Andy finds herself caught between the dreams she thought she wanted and the cost of what that reality brings. The Devil Wears Prada is a joyous, funny, and – of course – ultraglamorous new musical about navigating life’s runway to discover where you’re meant to be.

The Devil Wears Prada was released in cinemas in June 2006 and went on to gross $326 million worldwide. Lauren Weisberger’s original novel spent six months on The New York Times bestseller list.
