Shaina Taub

“The Devil Wears Prada” Lyricist

Shaina Taub has starred in the original Off-Broadway casts of iconic shows like Hadestown, the Signature Theatre’s hit production Old Hats, and her own critically lauded original musical adaptations of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and As You Like It (both of which were staged at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park). A massively prolific artist whose past triumphs also include winning the 2019 Kleban Prize, receiving a Jonathan Larson Grant in 2014, and working with Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban to co-write the Emmy Award-nominated opening number for the 2018 Tony Awards, she recently teamed up with Elton John to pen the lyrics for the upcoming Broadway musical The Devil Wears Prada. Along with The Devil Wears Prada, Shaina is now gearing up to star in her own original musical Suffs, premiering in spring 2022 at Off-Broadway’s Public Theater.
