All right everyone, gird your loins! A new musical version of The Devil Wears Prada is coming to the West End — and tickets are on sale now.
The bestselling book and film — which offer an insight into the brutal world of a New York fashion magazine — have been given the West End treatment, with an original score written by Elton John and lyrics by American composer Shaina Taub. Three-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell — who worked on Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde, Pretty Woman and Hairspray — takes care of direction and choreography.
The Devil Wears Prada centres around Andy, a recent college graduate who lands a job at Runway magazine (played by Anne Hathaway in the film), and faces an impossibly demanding boss in Miranda Priestley (Meryl Streep) as she gets sucked into the glamorous and ruthless world of fashion. Casting for the musical hasn't yet been announced.
