“Bringing Miranda Priestly to life in the West End is an absolute dream come true. Gird your loins, folks,” Williams told Variety about her new role.

The Devil Wears Prada musical for the West End features an original score by Elton John, lyrics by Shaina Taub, and a book by Kate Wetherhead. With Jerry Mitchell as director and choreographer of the production, showcasing a formidable creative team.
