Miranda Priestly doesn't like to move at a glacial pace—but even the editor-in-chief of Runway has to deal with pandemic-related schedule changes. The Broadway-aimed stage adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada will now hold its world premiere engagement July 19–August 21, 2022, at the James L. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago.

As previously reported, the musical is set to star Tony winner Beth Leavel as Miranda Priestly with Taylor Iman Jones as Andy Saks.

Producing with Kevin McCollum are Rocket Entertainment, with the production presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.

Show delays have become the de rigueur operations for theatres around the world as of late due to the coronavirus. Dr. Anthony Fauci said as recently as this week that theatres may be able to re-open in fall of this year.
