A ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Musical is Happening, and Elton John is Writing the songs!
Gird your loins dear, The Devil Wears Prada Musical is coming next year!
I don’t know about you, but I am incredibly excited to be seeing this bunch of characters singing & dancing – Can you imagine how terrifying, yet brilliant Miranda’s songs will be!
The cherry on the cake is the Sir Elton John will be writing the repertoire for the musical which, from his track record of Billy Elliot & The Lion King, couldn’t have been a more perfect fit!
The show will be directed by Tony Award Winner, Anna D Shapiro who has said to be giving “the hit film a fabulously fresh makeover".
It’s not yet been conformed who will be playing the iconic characters of Dragon Lady, Miranda (Meryl Streep), Andrea (Anne Hathaway) & Emily (Emily Blunt) but it’s safe to say that whoever they are, they have some serious shoes to fill.
If you are unaware of the story of The Devil Wears Prada, then get your hands on the film as it is a brilliant movie you can just keep re-watching.
The show will kick off in the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago but don’t be disheartened because The Lion King originally launched in Minneapolis and its has just reached 20 years running in the West End so if it is half as good as that then we will be seeing this musical in the UK sooner than you think!
