Shaina Taub, creator of an acclaimed 2016 Shakespeare in the Park production of Twelfth Night, has signed on a lyricist for Elton and Paul Rudnick's musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada.
This is based on the 2003 novel and the subsequent film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.
“We’re all having a blast and I’m delighted with the way the show is shaping up,” says Elton.
Shaina adds, “Writing songs with Elton John is a joy and an honour. The Devil Wears Prada is one of my all-time favourite movies. I'm thrilled to join this amazing team in bringing this story about two complex and brilliant women to the stage.”
