Oliver Award-winner Matt Henry to play ‘Nigel’ in new musical ‘THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA’

Oliver Award-winner Matt Henry will play Runway’s Creative Fashion Director, Nigel, in the  upcoming new musical, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, based on the blockbuster film and bestselling novel.

Henry joins the previously announced Vanessa Williams, best known for her celebrated roles in Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives and as a multi-award winning singer, as the irrepressible Miranda Priestly.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will strut into London’s Dominion Theatre in October 2024 following an exclusive preview engagement at Theatre Royal Plymouth in Summer 2024.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA features an original score by music icon, and Olivier and Tony Award winner Elton John, lyrics by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub and book by Kate Wetherhead, with direction & choreography by three-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell.

Fresh out of college, aspiring journalist Andy scores a job at the prestigious Runway magazine working for fashion’s most powerful and terrifying icon — editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly. Sacrificing her personal life to meet Miranda’s impossible demands, Andy finds herself seduced by the glamorous world she once despised. How far will she go to succeed… and will it be worth selling her soul to get what she’s always wanted?

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA features an all-star, award-winning creative team led by
Elton John (Tammy Faye, Billy Elliot: The Musical, The Lion King), new direction & choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde, Pretty Woman, Hairspray), lyrics by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub (Suffs), book by Kate Wetherhead (Ever After, Submissions Only), set design by Tim Hatley (Life of Pi, Back to the Future), costume design by Gregg Barnes (Some Like It Hot, Legally Blonde), lighting design by Bruno Poet (The Tina Turner Musical, Frankenstein), sound design by Gareth Owen (Come From Away, & Juliet) and casting by Jill Green CDG.

Further casting for the production will be announced in due course.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is produced by Tony Award winner Kevin McCollum (In the Heights, Avenue Q, Rent, SIX and Mrs. Doubtfire), Rocket Entertainment/David Furnish (Tammy Faye, Billy Elliot: The Musical) and Jamie Wilson (Mrs Doubtfire, Ain’t Too Proud, Sister Act The Musical) and presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.

Jerry Mitchell now steers this brand-new reimagined production of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA to new heights following a developmental run in Chicago in 2022.
