Skinner, Alabado Do “Prada” Reading

A current reading of the in-development musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada took place this week, with Tony Award nominee Emily Skinner starring as fashion magazine titan Miranda Priestly. Skinner, currently playing Georgia Holt in Broadway’s The Cher Show, is no stranger to singing composer Elton John’s music on the stage, having previously appeared in the Tony, Oscar, and Grammy winner’s Billy Elliot. Starring alongside Skinner in the July 1 and 2 industry presentation was Krystina Alabado (Broadway’s Mean Girls) as fledgling assistant Andy Sachs. I can’t believe Skinner’s name on the marquee will sell tickets, but the Broadway premiere is still a long way off.
