You read the book, loved the film. Now experience The Devil Wears Prada live on stage in this new musical comedy.
This dazzling new stage adaptation tells the story of an aspiring writer who lands a job working for a magazine editor from hell.
A thinly veiled riff on Vogue powerhouse Anna Wintour, portrayed magnificently on screen by Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada is a joyous, funny, and — of course — ultraglamorous story about navigating life’s runway to discover where you’re meant to be.
The Devil Wears Prada is brought to life on stage by a powerhouse creative team, including score by Oscar, Tony Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub, and book by Kate Wetherhead, based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Weisberger and the Twentieth Century Fox motion picture.
What’s the Story?
The Devil Wears Prada follows aspiring writer Andy Sachs as she lands a job as an assistant to notorious New York Runway Editor-in-Chief Miranda Priestly. The new gig demands 15-hour workdays, an impossibly demanding list of chores, a demoralising trip to Paris and an extensive makeover montage.
Trying to survive under her stylish yet terrifying boss, she finds herself caught between the dreams she thought she wanted, and the cost of what that reality brings.
Andy eventually finds her way and realises that fashion is more than clothes and “this stuff,” forcing her to determine her own set of morals in the merciless industry.
