For All You Royal-Lovers, a Princess Diana Musical Could Be Headed to Broadway
It's been 20 years since Princess Diana's death, and now her legacy will now live on in the form of a musical called Diana.
Tony-winning director Christopher Ashley (Come from Away) and writer Joe DiPietro (Memphis) are currently working on a musical based on Princess Di's life. The lauded team is toiling away on what will surely be a new favorite play at Vassar College's Powerhouse Theater, which also incubated a little production called Hamilton. Vassar will host a reading of Diana next month, and it is expected to draw many a Broadway producer eager to jump at the chance to bring the late Princess of Wales's story to the stage. The production will then head to La Jolla Playhouse this fall for a workshop, at which point we may or may not have started researching how to get tickets.
Move over, Lin-Manuel Miranda: There's a new historical darling in town. (JK, we love you and we're still researching how to get your tickets, too.)
