Mother. Daughter. Sister. Wife. Philanthropist. Icon. Princess.
The dazzling and devastating life of Princess Diana takes centre stage in this original musical by writers David Bryan and Joe DiPietro - best known for Memphis.
It is 1996. Diana has divorced the heir to the throne. She is free.
This radical new version of Diana: The Musical, directed by Owen Horsley, hands the microphone to Diana as she reflects on her past. In a theatrical twist, this is a tale in two parts, narrated by Diana (Kerry Ellis) as she looks back on herself as the 19 year old Diana (Maiya Quansah-Breed) that captured the nation.
On this stage she is in control of her narrative and her story is brought to life with humour and satire and in turn reveals a woman who, having just signed her divorce papers, sees a future filled with opportunity.
Following its viral Netflix recording, this will be the first time the UK has seen this iconic Broadway musical live on stage. Featuring brilliant, 80s-inspired mega-hit show-tunes, and guest-starring Denise Welch as The Queen, this show promises to be a fabulous night out.
