This is the story of the most famous modern woman: Diana, Princess of Wales. And soon found herself at odds with her husband, the ruthless news media, and the monarchy itself. Princess Diana used her heart to lead ruthlessly, to stand up for her family, her country, and herself. And all this while trying to capture the hearts of the world.
Tony Award-winning director Christopher Ashley (Come From Away) and the screenwriters behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis (Joe DiPietro and David Bryan) let us compete with the 20th century’s greatest in this landmark building. One of the eye-catching characters is a face-to-face music event featuring an epic modern soundtrack.
