The casting is expertly handled by Jill Green CDG. The Devil Wears Prada musical in London is brought to life through the production efforts of Tony Award winner Kevin McCollum/Alchemation (known for "In the Heights," "Avenue Q," "Rent," "SIX," and "Mrs. Doubtfire"), Rocket Entertainment/David Furnish ("Tammy Faye" and "Billy Elliot: The Musical"), and Jamie Wilson ("Mrs. Doubtfire," "Ain’t Too Proud," and "Sister Act The Musical").

What is The Devil Wears Prada Book and Film About?

In 2003, Lauren Weisberger's best-selling novel took the literary world by storm, receiving critical acclaim. This glamorous narrative drew inspiration from Weisberger's firsthand experiences as an assistant to the legendary Vogue magazine editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. The result was a satirical exploration of the fashion industry and the world of high-end fashion magazines, where ruthless demands and exquisite fashion reign supreme.

Fast forward to 2006, and the novel was transformed into a film adaptation bearing the same title. Directed by David Frankel, this cinematic gem featured Meryl Streep as the formidable Miranda Priestly and Anne Hathaway as the aspiring Andrea Sachs. Meryl Streep's portrayal of the iconic Miranda Priestly not only earned widespread praise but also secured her an Academy Award nomination, a testament to her outstanding performance in this memorable role.
