Anna D. Shapiro to Direct THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA Musical

Steppenwolf Artistic Director Anna D. Shapiro has been announced as the director of the in-development musicalization of “The Devil Wears Prada,” featuring music by Sir Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub and a book by Paul Rudnick.

Based on Lauren Weisberger’s best-selling 2003 novel and the 2006 film, the Broadway-bound musical is produced by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions, and Rocket Entertainment.

“I am truly honored to be a part of this incredible project. Working with Shaina, Paul, and Sir Elton has already proven to be one of the great thrills of my career, and I look forward to bringing Lauren’s beloved world to the stage,” said Shapiro, who won the Tony Award in 2008 for directing “August: Osage County” and received a Tony nomination for directing “The Motherfucker with the Hat” in 2011.

A production time-line is yet to be announced, including whether an out-of-town tryout will take place.
