In 1981, an assistant kindergarten teacher married the Prince of Wales and, overnight, became the most famous woman in the world. But behind the fairytale, there was a troubled marriage and a young woman struggling to find her voice. Facing an entrenched monarchy and unprecedented media scrutiny, Princess Diana surprises everyone – including herself – as she grows into a global phenomenon and manages to change the world. Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and the writers behind the Tony Award® -winning musical Memphis create this highly-anticipated musical, featuring an epic and sweeping contemporary score.
The production runs at La Jolla Playhouse from February 19 – March 31, 2019, at the Playhouse’s Mandell Weiss Theatre.
