Elton John wrote the music for this world premiere stage adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada, the memoir-turned-movie chronicling the glitzy, high-stress world of high fashion media. With lyrics by Shaina Taub and a book by Kate Wetherhead, the musical follows naive college grad Andy Sachs (Taylor Iman Jones), who takes a job at the fashion magazine Runway—a thinly-veiled fictional version of Vogue—as an assistant for the tyrannical Miranda Priestly (Beth Leavel). Hazing, makeovers and arch ruminations on the color cerulean ensue. As pressure mounts, the fashion-averse Andy—who's hoping parlay her hellish position into a serious magazine writing career—is forced to choose between her fledgling career and personal happiness.
