MISSED OPPORTUNITY

The set design was great. The rest disappointing. Saw play on 7/31. Can not recall one song. No need for Andy to have friends as they were not needed. I never believed her relationship with Nate. For a play about fashion, her little transformation was a huge missed opportunity and her Paris dresses were BORING. Miranda’s dialogue was not cutting enough and Emily and Nigel steal every scene with great personality and that’s the problem. Everyone is more interesting than Andy Sachs.

DISAPPOINTING

I saw the July 24 evening showing. Loved the movie and was very excited to see Broadway's take on it. There were a few bright spots, but overall, very disappointing. No memorable songs for a musical is what stands out the most. The Christian character was not good at all, and Andi was just okay (although she did have a lovely voice). The Nigel and Emily characters were the stars and I did enjoy many of the colorful costumes. Good thing this is pre-broadway and there is time to fix some things before hitting Midtown.

NO STYLE IN THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

A very strange play. While set design is very impressive you get the sense that the creators of the show have a disdain for high fashion. I understand it is not everyone's cup of tea but if your are making a play based on The Devil Wears Prado the costumes need to look amazing not a hodgepodge of baggy 1940s styles and mocking of haute couture. The dress Emily wore for the gala was ridiculous and not in a fabulous way. There were no memorable songs and the only standout characters are Nigel and Emily. The transformation of Andi was chunky and honestly the actress really did not seem really into the role nor did she have chemistry with the love interests. I understand this is not the final product but oh boy does it need work before it goes to Broadway.

I'D GIVE IT 2.5 (IF THAT WERE A CHOICE)

I am surprised that no-one has mentioned this yet: a boss verbally harassing a subordinate is no longer acceptable. Maybe the playwright hasn't heard of the Great Resignation? No-one deserves to be treated this way...and it's not humorous. Perhaps, it would have worked better if they had set it in a previous decade (?). If this does go to Broadway, audiences may enjoy the fashion, but the NY press will eat it for lunch.

NEEDS WORK

While there were many funny moments and some characters were spot on, overall, the show needs a lot of work. First of all, it’s too long at nearly 2 1/2 hours; it should be much tighter, especially as some of the scenes simply don’t move the story along. Next, the choreography and costuming are a mess. Finally, the structure is off. What should be the lead song is nearly unintelligible, not the blockbuster it should be, and the show ends in a whimper. When it was done, we asked ourselves, “that’s it?”, rather than jumping to our feet to clap enthusiastically. I really wanted to like it, and maybe I will if it’s reworked before Broadway.

WHY?

All I will say is that two “moments” from the movie. Miranda’s two monologues. We’re slobbered all over in terrible song choices. I could barely make out what she was saying. Good thing I know the movie. I was disappointed.

BORING, LACK LUSTRE, NO GREAT SONGS

Expected better since the move was great. None of the songs were memorable and showed off the actors voices. Disappointed in the costumes as they have the potential to be awesome. The whole show I kept thinking this would be better as a play and from someone who loves musicals that is a sad thought. Tickets were cheap (won the lottery) but I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Will be surprised if it lasts long.
