'The Devil Wears Prada' Musical To Debut Next Summer: Get The Details

Miranda's back … that's all.

According to the Chicago Tribune, The Devil Wear's Prada is receiving yet another adaptation: a musical! The forthcoming production — originally inspired by Lauren Weisberger's 2003 bestselling novel of the same name — will this time be based on the 2006 Oscar-nominated comedy-drama, starring Academy Award-winning actresses Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.

The spectacle, getting the musical treatment next summer, is set to premiere at Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre on July 14, and run through at least August 16, 2020.

What's more, the legendary Elton John has been attached to score the production, to be helmed by Tony Award-winning director Anna D. Shapiro. Additionally, Paul Rudinick will produce the book, as Shaina Taub will be tasked with the lyrics for the show.

While lead producer Kevin McCollum declined to disclose a specific date on which Devil Wears Prada would make its way to Broadway, he did reveal, "It was important to Anna that we premiere in Chicago."

The beloved modern classic, which grossed over $300 million worldwide, illustrates the power dynamics between formidable fashion legend and Editor-in-Chief, Miranda Priestley (Streep), and her spunky yet fashionably-inept personal assistant, Andy Sachs (Hathaway).
