The Devil Wears Prada description

The Devil Wears Prada – Hellishly good!

Did you see the original movie of The Devil Wears Prada, the 2006 American comedy-drama? It was directed by David Frankel and produced by Wendy Finerman with screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna. Originally inspired by the 2003 novel of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, now it's due on the West End stage, a massive treat for anyone who loves outrageous fun.

You read the book. You adored the movie, starring the brilliant Meryl Streep. Now The Devil Wears Prada is going to be produced live on stage, a dazzling new musical comedy to die for and due here in 2021. This is a fantastic, brand new stage adaptation, brought bang up to date, about a wannabe writer who ends up working for the magazine editor from hell. Hilarious!

What's the plot?

Andrea Sachs is highly capable, smart and sensible. But she's a little bit naïve. A brand new journalism graduate, she is thrilled to get a role as assistant to the terrifying Miranda Priestly, the editor-in-chief of the posh glossy fashion magazine Runway. But this is New York, times are tough, and life as a second assistant to the powerful, madly sophisticated Miranda Priestly is far from easy.

Priestly, whom rumour has it was inspired by a real life, famously scary Vogue Magazine editor, is absolutely ruthless, totally merciless. Andrea's dreams of becoming a journalist are rocked every day, she's not sure she can handle it, and she faces the professional challenge of her life.

Priestly's first assistant Emily tells Andrea about the details behind the cruel behaviour and weird tastes of their boss. The friendly stylist Nigel helps Andrea to dress better for the role. And as Andrea changes her attitude and the way she behaves, it starts to affect her personal life and her relationship with her boyfriend Nate. When it also begins to affect her relationships with family and friends, Sachs wonders if success is actually worth the price.

History and creative team

This is thought to be a thinly veiled expose of the legendary Vogue powerhouse Anna Wintour. The main character is absolutely horrible. But the play is hilarious, an uber-glamorous tale revealing how life at the top isn't always a good thing.

The creative team includes a score by the Oscar, Tony, Golden Globe and Grammy Award-winning Sir Elton John, with lyrics by Shaina Taub and book from Paul Rudnick. It's due to be directed by Anna D. Shapiro, and it'll be in theatreland during 2021.

Who is this show for?

This fantastically sophisticated production is suitable for people aged 15 and over.
