Twenty years after Princess Diana tragically passed away, public interest in her life is still just as intense as ever. The Princess’ story will now be re-told through a musical in Diana, a production coming to the La Jolla Playhouse in California next February. The musical will start in 1981, the year Diana married Prince Charles, and will follow her life through her twenties, exploring her relationship with the royal family, her husband and looking at his infamous affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles.
The musical’s official synopsis reads: “It’s 1981 and the world is hungry for a royal wedding—but is the 20-year-old bride prepared for what comes after? Following her fairytale union, Princess Diana faces a distant husband, an unmovable monarchy and overwhelming media scrutiny. But her modern perspective and remarkable compassion galvanizes a nation, even as it threatens the royal family’s hold on England.”
The musical is currently at the audition process and will be set for release in February 2019.
