The princess thrust onto the world stage. The tabloid media utterly captivated by her stunning looks and astonishing vulnerability. The globe’s preeminent dynasty teetering on a knife’s edge. This is the story of the most famous woman of the modern age as she struggles to endure a spotlight brighter than any the world had ever known. She defied expectations, she rocked the royals, and she captured her nation’s heart by leading with her own. She was Diana, Princess of Wales, and her legacy will live forever.
Tony Award®-winning director Christopher Ashley (Come From Away) and the writers behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis (Joe DiPietro and David Bryan) bring us face-to-face with one of the 20th century’s most compelling figures in this landmark musical event. Jeanna de Waal, acclaimed for her performance in the title role in the world premiere, will lead the cast on Broadway.
Diana had its world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2019 and was an instant sold-out hit, extending its run into the spring. Performances will begin on Broadway on Monday, March 2, 2020, at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th St.), with an official opening night set for Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
