The Devil Wears Prada becomes musical. After the film version with Meryl Streep, the famous book by Lauren Weisberger will debut on July 14th in Chicago.
One of the most popular stories about the fashion world, and especially about the behind the scenes of the Fashion Magazine editors, will be proposed at the theater under the artistic supervision of Sir Elton John.
"Imagine The Devil Wears Prada for a musical, it's super exciting: I am a big fan of both the book and the movie, and a great fan of the fashion world. I look forward to getting my hands on this piece of popular culture", said Sir Elton.
The attention will surely be on the costumes. Who doesn't remember the perfect outfits created by Patricia Field for the film? The white coat, the black Valentino dress and the fuchsia cape, just to name a few, will remain in the collective imagination as the ambitious but perfect portrait of the fashion world.
