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, the upcoming new musical, currently on hiatus due to Covid-19, began previews on Monday, March 2, 2020, and was scheduled to open on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway (220 West 48th St.). The musical is now set to open on Broadway on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
Diana, A New Musical will premiere on Netflix in 2021 ahead of the show’s Broadway opening, filmed without an audience from the Longacre Theatre, and will feature the original Broadway cast including Jeanna de Waal as “Diana”, Roe Hartrampf as “Prince Charles”, Erin Davie as “Camilla Parker Bowles”, and two-time Tony winner Judy Kaye as “Queen Elizabeth”. The producers have worked closely with Actor’s Equity Association on all protocols.
