🚨 THEATRE FAN NEWS ALERT 🚨
⭐ BETH LEAVEL & TAYLOR IMAN JONES TO LEAD THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA MUSICAL ⭐
The upcoming musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada initial casting has been announced.
Beth Leavel and Taylor Iman Jones will take on the roles of Miranda Priestly and Andy Sachs.
The musical’s world premiere staging will happen in July 2021 at Chicago’s CIBC Theatre.
Based on Lauren Weisberger’s bestselling 2003 novel, which was turned into a smash 2006 film, The Devil Wears Prada follows Andy Sachs (Jones), 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 (Leavel).
Anna D. Shapiro will direct the new musical, which features a book by Paul Rudnick, music by Elton John and lyrics by Shaina Taub. MTV Video Music Award winner James Alsop has newly signed on as choreographer.
