Show Details & Reviews
Diana traces the story of Lady Diana Spencer who married into the British monarchy and changed it by wearing her heart on her sleeve, being passionate about causes close to her heart and standing up for her family. The show was written by Joe DiPeitro and David Bryan, who partnered on the Tony Award-winning Memphis. Tony Award winner Christopher Ashley will direct, Tony nominee Kelly Devine is the choreographer and music supervision/arrangements will be by Ian Eisendrath.
Jenna de Waal will play Princess Diana, Roe Hartrampf will play Prince Charles, Erin Davie will play Camilla Parker Bowles, and two-time Tony winner Judy Kaye will play Queen Elizabeth.
The show premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse in California and hopes to follow such Broadway successes as Come From Away and Memphis. Los Angeles Times critic Charles McNulty offered a mixed review, calling the show a British version of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and “as American as Applebee’s,” though he also “has a lively sense of humor about itself.”
