In February 2021, the creative team of The Devil Wears Prada participated in a writers retreat in preparation for the 2022 Chicago premiere of the musical. The Devil Wears Prada is based on Lauren Weisberger’s best-selling 2003 novel and the 2006 blockbuster film from Fox 2000 Pictures, starring Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.
