The Devil Wears Prada Musical Sets 2020 World Premiere in Chicago

September 17th, 2019 | By Andy Lefkowitz

The hotly anticipated musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada has scheduled a world premiere staging at Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre. The production will run from July 14, 2020 through August 16 prior to a Broadway engagement, with further details to come.

Based on Lauren Weisberger’s bestselling 2003 novel, which was turned into a smash 2006 film, The Devil Wears Prada follows Andy Sachs, a smart but drab aspiring journalist who gets sucked into the glamorous world of the elite fashion magazine Runway and the servitude of its cutthroat editor, Miranda Priestly.

Anna D. Shapiro¬†will direct the new musical, which features a book by Paul Rudnick, music by Elton John and lyrics by Shaina Taub. Casting and additional creative team members for the Chicago production will be announced at a later time. Till then, look back at the film’s trailer below.
