Vanessa Williams Embodies Miranda Priestly in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical

Vanessa Williams, a powerhouse of stage and screen, prepares to step into the iconic role of Miranda Priestly in the eagerly anticipated musical adaptation of ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. With her history of commanding performances and undeniable presence, Williams is poised to channel Priestly’s intimidating allure and unwavering command of the fashion world.

Williams’ experience as the unforgettable Wilhelmina Slater in ‘Ugly Betty’, coupled with her extensive Broadway career, underscores her ability to embody the ruthless, yet undeniably stylish, Miranda Priestly. Fans of the beloved film recall Meryl Streep’s Oscar-nominated portrayal of the formidable editor-in-chief. Williams, an accomplished actress in her own right, has the potential to infuse the character with her own distinct charisma and captivating edge.

Helmed by legendary composer Elton John, lyricist Shaina Taub, writer Kate Wetherhead, and Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell (‘Kinky Boots’), the musical boasts a team of undisputed theatrical talents.

In a recent video, Williams expressed her gratitude for the outpouring of support and playfully urged fans to secure their seats for what promises to be a dazzling production. “That’s all,” she quipped, with a touch of Priestly’s sardonic charm.

Set to grace the stage of London’s historic Dominion Theatre, ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ musical will commence performances in October 2024.
