According to Deadline, Tony Award-winner, Anna D. Shapiro was announced Wednesday by producers Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment as director. According to the producers, the production plan and casting will be announced at a later date.
The musical is based on Lauren Weisberger’s best-selling 2003 novel and the 2006 film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, about an aspiring writer who works for a magazine editor from hell.
The musical will feature music by John, lyrics by Shaina Taub, and book by Paul Rudnick.
“I am truly honored to be a part of this incredible project,” Shapiro said in a statement. “Working with Shaina, Paul, and Sir Elton has already proven to be one of the great thrills of my career, and I look forward to bringing Lauren’s beloved world to the stage.”
