Strutting into London Fashion Week, Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) will play the iconic role of Miranda Priestly, the undisputed Queen of Fashion and Editor-in-Chief of Runway Magazine, in the upcoming West End production of The Devil Wears Prada.

The new musical, based on the blockbuster film and bestselling novel, will strut into London's Dominion Theatre in October 2024, featuring an original score by music icon, and Olivier and Tony Award winner Elton John, lyrics by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub, and a book by Kate Wetherhead, with direction and choreography by three-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell.

Vanessa Williams said: “Bringing Miranda Priestly to life in the West End is an absolute dream come true. Gird your loins, folks.”

Further casting for the production will be announced in due course.

The production will play an exclusive preview engagement in Summer 2024 at Theatre Royal Plymouth prior to opening in the West End in October.

The Devil Wears Prada features set design by Tim Hatley, costumes by Gregg Barnes, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Gareth Owen, and casting by Jill Green CDG.

Jerry Mitchell now steers this brand-new reimagined production of The Devil Wears Prada to new heights following a developmental run in Chicago in 2022.
