The moment we’ve been waiting for could be on the horizon. “The Devil Wears Prada” is coming to Broadway, and according to the theater’s official website, it’s “coming soon.” And “soon” can’t get here fast enough. Or, in the words of Miranda Priestly, “By all means, move at a glacial pace, you know how that thrills me.”
Because seriously, rumors of this Broadway musical have been circulating since 2015. Which has been excruciating for us because, with the likes of Elton John and playwright Paul Rudnick signed on to work on the adaptation, there’s no way the musical version of this book-turned-movie won’t be absolutely amazing.
There’s no word on the cast and crew for the Broadway production just yet, but if the roster is anywhere near as stellar as the movie—Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, just to name a few—there’s no way they could go wrong.
Hathaway’s been known to participate in musical performances, so she may just grace us with her presence on-stage, playing the role of Andy Sachs again. And Streep’s been known to showcase her vocal skills, too—so who knows? We’re excited just thinking about it!
Fans of “The Devil Wears Prada” film and book couldn’t be more ready to watch the story unfold on the Broadway stage. One Twitter user responded with an appropriate gif after hearing the news:

Others have turned the announcement into a PSA:
For many fans, this has been a long time coming:

Here’s to hoping this play will appear very soon.
In the meantime, there’s another movie-turned-Broadway-production to look forward to and—better news—this one actually has a premiere date. “Mean Girls,” based on the 2004 film, is coming to Broadway, with previews beginning March 12, 2018. The script was written by Tina Fey, so it’s bound to be hilarious. Mark your calendars, folks!
There’s a lot to look forward to as a Broadway theater attendee, so if you don’t already have plans to head to New York, you may want to let your boss know you’ll be taking off to travel to the Big Apple sometime soon.
