Hold onto your Christian Louboutin's because the iconic 2006 movie, The Devil Wears Prada is receiving a totally Chanel musical makeover! And if that's not enough THE Elton John is lending his song-writing genius to the project which will also feature lyrics from Shaina Taub and a book by Paul Rudnik. Directed by Tony award-winner Anna D. Shapiro, The Devil Wears Prada: A New Musical is set to be the most gorgeous theatrical event of the year!

When ambitious young writer Andy lands a job as a personal assistant to the infamous Miranda Priestly (the editor-in-chief of the prestigious Runway Magazine) she is thrown into a world unknown. Surrounded by expensive clothes and snooty fashionistas, Andy must navigate the demands of her tightly strung boss. With her eyes on the prize, to last one year in her position so that she can get her dream job as a journalist, it's time for Andy to throw away her knitted cardigans and smart shoes and dive into the world of fashion.
