"Everyone wants to be us," says ruthless editrix Miranda Priestly at the end of "The Devil Wears Prada." And on Tuesday morning, the Broadway-bound musical adaptation announced exactly who Miranda and the rest of the 2006 film characters would play on stage.

Meryl Streep & # 39; s fashion magazine head Miranda Priestly is played by Beth Leavel, a Tony Award winner for "The Drowsy Chaperone" whose credits include "Hal Prince & # 39; s Show Boat," Mamma Mia! "And both the original and the revival of" 42nd Street are. She last appeared on Broadway in "The Prom" – in a role that Streep will play in a Netflix adaptation.

The role of her big-eyed assistant and not-so-stylish, Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway in the film), will be taken over by Taylor Iman Jones, who turned heads for her striking performance in Broadway's "Head Over Heels" and also appeared in "Groundhog Day."

The casting of an actress of color for the role of Andy reflects the discussion in the fashion industry about diversity and inclusion since the release of the film.

"Everyone is firmly committed to creating an updated version of the beloved story," said David Furnish, one of the producers of the musical. "The show must reflect the cultural and social changes that the fashion world have redefined since Lauren Weisberger wrote her novel more than 16 years ago."

Anna D. Shapiro directs the production, based on Weisberger's hit film and bestseller 2003. The creative team consists of Elton John as a composer (and producer), Shaina Taub as a text writer and Paul Rudnick as a book writer. James Alsop – known for her work with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Janelle Monáe – takes part in the production as a choreographer.

The musical has its world premiere at the Chicago CIBC Theater from July 13 to August 15, 2021. Additional casting and creative team members for the Chicago production and future Broadway plans will be announced later.
