“The Devil Wears Prada” musical will have its world premiere in Chicago.
Directed by Anna D. Shapiro, with music by Sir Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub and a book by Paul Rudnick, the musical will play the James M. Nederlander Theatre from July 14, 2020 through August 16. The production plans a Broadway run after that.
Casting and additional creative team members for the Chicago production and future Broadway plans will be announced at a later time.
The musical is produced by Kevin McCollum and Rocket Entertainment and presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical, the name under which Disney Theatrical Productions is licensing former Fox titles after its acquisition of Fox Stage Productions. Buena Vista has the option to join all of its licensed productions as a co-producer.
