I just started a workshop of a new musical in the works called “Diana.” It had much of the same crew as “Memphis,” the show I was a part of back in 2009.
If these people are behind it, I’m sure it’s good!
“According to Broadway.com, the world premiere of Diana — an original musical set in 1981, as Diana prepared to marry Prince Charles — will take place during the 2018-2019 season of California’s La Jolla Playhouse. The musical will also explore the aftermath of that marriage, from her husband’s highly publicized affair with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to her relationship with the press.”
“While there’s been no word so far on who will take on the titular role, Diana’s story is in good hands. Diana is being brought to life by the Tony-award winning pair behind the 2009 Broadway musical Memphis, Joe DiPietro and David Bryan. Bryan is also the keyboard player for Bon Jovi.”
“Fittingly, the musical’s original score will feature both classical melodies and pop and rock songs reminiscent of the 1980s.”
