‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical to Premiere in Chicago

Posted  5 years ago  in  Arts and Culture, Trending

2 MIN READ - Broadway In Chicago announced today the new musical The Devil Wears Prada will have its Pre-Broadway World Premiere at the James M. Nederlander Theatre (24 W. Randolph St.) from July 14, 2020, through August 16, 2020, prior to a Broadway engagement.

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 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 — an 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.

Strutting an all-star team, including music by Tony Award winner Sir Elton John (Billy Elliot, Aida), lyrics by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub (Twelfth Night at The Public Theater), a book by Paul Rudnick (In & Out, Jeffrey), music supervision by Nadia DiGiallonardo (Waitress), and direction by Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County). The Devil Wears Prada models that getting what you want simply means chasing it down, even in four-inch heels.

Casting and additional creative team members for the Chicago production and future Broadway plans will be announced at a later time. For more information, visit DevilWearsPradaMusical.com.
