Yes, in genuinely groundbreaking news, the 2006 comedy rom-com which has become an all-time favourite is set for the musical treatment - and fans don’t have long to wait as it’s set to hit theatre stages next year. Better yet, it will feature music by Elton John.
But, just what do we know so far about the Devil Wears Prada musical, who is in the cast, and exactly when and where it will be staged? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is the Devil Wears Prada Musical about?
The musical is based on the smash-hit film The Devil Wears Prada (2006), which was itself based on a best-selling novel of the same name by Lauren Weisberger (2003). Fans of the book or the film will know that the story follows keen journalist Andrea Sachs, known as Andy to her friends, who takes a job at high end fashion magazine Runway working as an assistant for industry-renowned but difficult editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly because this will open doors for her within the media industry. But, it turns out to be about a lot more than just clothes.
The synopsis on the official Devil Wears Prada Musical website reads: “Fresh out of college, aspiring journalist Andy scores a job at the prestigious Runway magazine working for fashion's most powerful and terrifying icon — editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly. Sacrificing her personal life to meet Miranda's impossible demands, Andy finds herself seduced by the glamorous world she once despised. How far will she go to succeed and will it be worth selling her soul to get what she’s always wanted?”
