What is The Devil Wears Prada in London about? 

Pick your garments carefully because this new musical is hautter than hell! The Devil Wears Prada is a delightful, hilarious and fabulously chic story about discovering your inner authenticity. 

Fresh from her college days, aspiring journalist Andy lands a job at the renowned Runway magazine, where she works under the formidable and influential editor-in-chief, Miranda Priestly. Andy is willing to give up her personal life to meet Miranda's incredibly high expectations, and in the process, she finds herself increasingly drawn to the glamorous world she used to disdain. The question is, how much is Andy willing to do in order to achieve her goals, and will the price of sacrificing her principles be worth it in the end?

About The Devil Wears Prada book and film 

Lauren Weisberger’s smash-hit novel was published in 2003 to critical acclaim. The glitzy tale was inspired by Weisberger's personal experiences working as an assistant to Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine. What resulted was a satirical glimpse into the fashion industry itself and the high-end fashion magazine world…with all of its ruthless and demanding quirks, and beautiful outfits of course.

In 2006, the novel was given new life and was adapted into a film of the same name, which has designed its own legacy. Directed by David Frankel. The movie starred Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly and Anne Hathaway as Andrea Sachs. Meryl Streep's portrayal of the ruthless and iconic Miranda Priestly earned her critical adoration (and an Academy Award nomination, no biggie!).

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
