It's been 22 years since Princess Diana's death, and now her legacy will officially live on in the form of a Broadway musical called Diana. 

We first heard that Tony-winning director Christopher Ashley (Come from Away) and writer Joe DiPietro (Memphis) were working on a musical about Princess Di's life back in 2017. 

But now, the acclaimed musical has wrapped its extended world premiere run at California's La Jolla Playhouse and will begin previews at Broadway's Longacre Theatre on March 2 of next year (with the official opening to the public on March 31).

The plot explores the life of the late Princess Diana, following everything from her (rocky) marriage to Prince Charles, to his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles and their eventual split. As far as casting goes, several members from the La Jolla version will be reprising their roles, including Jeanna de Waal in the titular role of Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles and Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles. Tony Award winner Judy Kaye will also star as Queen Elizabeth II.
