'The Devil Wears Prada' Musical to Premiere in Chicago

'The Devil Wears Prada' musical will be premiering in Chicago next summer! The Chicago Tribune says:

The new Broadway musical based on the 2006 movie “The Devil Wears Prada" is to premiere next summer at Broadway in Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago, its lead producer Kevin McCollum told the Tribune. Since the score is by Elton John, that means the legendary rocketman, in the midst of an epic, three-year farewell tour, likely will be hanging around town making any necessary fixes.

The long-in-gestation musical, set to play in Chicago from July 14 through at least Aug. 16, 2020, also will feature lyrics by Shaina Taub and a book by Paul Rudnick. As previously reported, the director will be Anna D. Shapiro, artistic director of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

“It was important to Anna that we premiere in Chicago,” McCollum said, declining to specify a specific date for the show to move to Broadway, where “Devil Wears Prada” is expected during the 2020-21 season.

You know the movie starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway! And music from Elton John! I can't wait for this. Will you see it?
