"Rocketman" Photocall - The 72nd Annual Cannes Film Festival

Broadway in Chicago is in for a big treat. Ahead of its New York Broadway premiere the all new musical, The Devil Wears Prada, will play Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre starting in July of 2020.

This all new musical features music by Tony Award winner Sir Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub, a book by Paul Rudnick and directed by Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro.

Synopsis of the production:

Andy, an ambitious young writer in New York City, lands a job at a prestigious magazine. 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. A joyous, funny, and — of course — ultraglamorous story about navigating life’s runway to discover where you’re meant to be.

Announcements for casting and additional creative team members will be announced later.
