The Devil Wears Prada is getting the Elton treatment

First it was a book, then a film, and now The Devil Wears Prada is taking to the stage, courtesy of Elton John.

Elton will be writing all of the music, and his latest adaptation marks his third foray into the world of musical theatre, having previously adapted The Lion King and Billy Elliot before.

Legendary stage actress Beth Leavel will take on the formidable role of Editor-in-Chief Miranda Priestly, previously played by Meryl Streep, while Taylor Iman Jones will play Anna Hathaway’s character, Andy Sachs.

The musical adaptation which is set to open at Chicago’s CIBC Theatre in July, is scheduled to then travel to New York City, where the story is set, and while no other details have been released about potential tour dates, here's hoping it makes its way to the Middle East in the near future.
