Synopsis
PRINCESS DIANA THE MUSICAL tells the story of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, focusing on their courtship, marriage and her relationship with the public and the rest of the royal family. The musical culminates with her divorce but ends after her tragic death. As the musical progresses, it portrays the evolution of the young Diana into the intelligent, mature woman who became the most famous woman in the world.
 
The show begins in November of 1978, when the seventeen-year old Lady Diana Spencer is invited to Prince Charles’s thirtieth birthday gala. Here we also meet the other members of the Royal Family––his parents––The Queen and Prince Philip and his grandmother, the Queen Mum. Charles is frustrated because his parents are applying pressure on him to find a suitable young woman to marry.
 
From this point on, the story is well-known: the romance, the wedding, her difficulty fitting in to the royal family, his desperation at her rising popularity, her desperation to be a loved and loving wife and mom. Camilla has an important role because she is the one Charles truly loves. (In real life, Charles and Camilla are now married.) Fergie, Diana’s sister-in-law, is Diana’s close friend and confidant throughout the show, as well as one of her flat mates, Carolyn.
 
The musical tells Diana’s story. But Charles and the senior royal family are not portrayed as the “villains of the piece.” They are seen more as people with various expectations and needs which are too rigidly enforced.
 
The musical is a look at Diana’s complicated life and the songs reflect that diversity. There are 26 songs, ranging from inspirational to comedic to romantic, with humor, laughter and love. The ballad that will bring tears to the eyes of all Princess Diana lovers is “There Was a Time,” which reiterates the fact that while she loved Prince Charles, there are doubts that he ever loved her. You will leave this musical humming “Hope in My Heart,” for that is truly what Princess Diana gave to all of us.
