Princess Diana Musical on Broadway Details

A Musical About Princess Diana Is Coming to Broadway (We're Already in Line For Tickets)

Diana, Princess of Wales, wears an outfit in the colours of Canada during a state visit to Edmonton, Alberta, with her husband.

Diana, the musical based on the true story of the lady who became a princess, is officially heading to Broadway! The acclaimed musical, which just wrapped its extended world premiere run in California's La Jolla Playhouse, explores the life of the late Princess Diana, including her tempestuous marriage to Prince Charles, his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, and their eventual separation.

Written by Joe DiPietro and David Bryan (the duo behind Tony-winner Memphis), the production will begin previews at New York's Longacre Theatre on March 2, 2020, and officially open its doors for the public on March 31. Several cast members from the La Jolla performance will reprise their roles, including Jeanna de Waal in the titular role as the late Diana, princess of Wales. Roe Hartrampf (Prince Charles), Erin Davie (Camilla Parker Bowles), and two-time Tony Award-winner Judy Kaye (Queen Elizabeth II) will join her.

This isn't the first time Princess Diana has been the focus of public interest, or had someone step into her shoes to tell her story, but we're admittedly intrigued by the musical element of Diana. Is it too much to hope that there's a scene depicting Diana's royal night out with Freddie Mercury in there? Either way, you'll definitely want to keep your eyes peeled for Diana's Broadway debut on March 31!
