JULY 19-AUGUST 21, 2022

The Chicago world premiere production of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, THE MUSICAL opens July 19 for a limited five-week engagement through August 21, 2022, at Broadway In Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre. Based on Lauren Weisberger‘s best-selling 2003 novel and the 2006 blockbuster film, the show features an all-star creative team led by Sir Elton John, director Anna D. Shapiro, (August: Osage County) with lyrics by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub (Suffs), and a book by Kate Wetherhead (Ever After), music supervision by Nadia DiGiallonardo (Waitress), and choreography by James AlsopRunway Magazine. The supreme authority of the high-fashion world, and the new home of assistant Andy Sachs. It’s a position a million people would kill for, but under the sharp stilettos of Runway’s legendary Editor-in-Chief Miranda Priestly, the job is no dream. Up against Miranda’s blistering leadership and stratospheric expectations, Andy is pushed to the edge, forced to choose between her career and her own happiness. This is a glamorous and hilarious story about finding your place and discovering what matters most.
