As for theatre, she made her Broadway debut in 1994 with Kiss of the Spider Woman. She starred as the witch in the revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods in 2002, which earned her a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. The Devil Wears Prada however will mark her West End debut.

The Devil Wears Prada Musical is based on the 2006 blockbuster film that starred Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep and the best-selling novel by Laren Weisberger. The musical includes an original score by music legend Elton John, lyrics by Shania Taub, book by Kate Wetherhead, and direction and choreography by the incredible Jerry Mitchell.

The Devil Wears Prada Musical is strutting into the West End this autumn. Opening at the Dominion Theatre on 24th October, The Devil Wears Prada tickets are available now online, over the phone, or at our box office.
