The Devil Wears Prada Musical Casts Its Coming
With the current statement that The Note pad will be spun into a Broadway program, and the current success of Mean Girls: The Musical, it is shaping up to be quite a year for mid-aughts films that will be offered the stage musical treatment. The Devil Uses Prada is no exception.
For nearly two years, there have been conversations regarding a Broadway minute for the precious film and novel.
Now, the musical version of the 2006 movie starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep has actually discovered a cast for its very first main reading, and is inching towards a stage premiere. If you’re hoping Streep or Hathaway will reprise their roles as Miranda Priestly and Andy Sachs, do not hold your breath. Some fresh Broadway skill has been tapped, instead.
Following last year’s statement that Elton John, Shaina Taub, and Paul Rudnick were establishing the music, lyrics, and book for the musical, Playbill reports that the function of Miranda Priestly( the titular”Devil,”if you will)will be filled by Emily Skinner, a Tony-nominated entertainer, forthe reading.Andy Sachs, the fashion publication assistant who remains in over her head, will be played by Krystina Alabado, understood for her roles on Broadway in American Moron and American Psycho, and most just recently for representing Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls.
The function of Emily– Miranda’s other, snobbier assistant– will be filled to Heléne Yorke, whom you might know from High Maintenance and The Other 2. Mario Cantone will read Nigel, the art director who has Andy’s back(the Stanley Tucci role in the movie), and Etai Benson will handle the lines of blando chef of a sweetheart, Nate(played by Adrian Grenier in the movie ).
Nevertheless, there’s a catch: the musical is still in development, and a reading is just the very first step prior to it makes its method to Broadway(after this would be a workshop, and, finally, an out-of-town check out run ). Those productions do not just occur. There’s a lot to straighten out before hand. Plus, there’s no pledges that the entire reported cast for the reading will make its way to the end with it. As of today, there is no promoted timeline for when The Devil Wears Prada will be performed on stage, but the aforementioned cast will assemble for the reading this week. That’s all.Related: The Devil Wears Prada Musical Is Being Soundtracked By Elton John and Author Shaina Taub
