Elton John is providing music for a stage adaptation of “The Devil Wears Prada.”
The best-selling novel turned hit movie tells the story of an overbearing manager and an ambitious but inexperienced writer in the world of fashion.
The movie starred Anne Hathaway as the young writer who fails to meet the sky-high demands of Meryl Streep who plays the editor-in-chief of a fictional fashion magazine.
The stage show will feature music by Elton John with lyrics by Shaina Taub, Billboard reports. Taub is an Emmy-nominated writer and a rising star in musical theater.
The pre-Broadway show will run in Chicago for a month in mid-2020.
The Broadway run is anticipated, but casting and dates have not yet been announced.
