"If" is performed by Jeanna de Waal - who stars in the title role, with accompaniment in the video by David Bryan on piano. After it becomes clear to all that Diana's turbulent marriage to Charles cannot last, the Queen allows the royal couple to separate. Feeling free from the watchful eyes of the Windsors, Princess Diana steps out and dreams of all she can now accomplish ("If.")
Bryan, who wrote music & lyrics for the musical with Joe DiPietro (book & lyrics), is the keyboardist, singer and founding member of Bon Jovi and was recently inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. He and DiPietro are also the Tony Award®-winning writing team behind Memphis, which won the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical.
de Waal will be joined on Broadway by Roe Hartrampf as "Prince Charles", Erin Davie as "Camilla Parker Bowles", and two-time Tony Award winner Judy Kaye as "Queen Elizabeth". Complete cast will be announced soon.
Tony Award-winning director Christopher Ashley (Come From Away) and the writers behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis (Joe DiPietro and David Bryan) bring us face-to-face with one of the 20th century's most compelling figures in this landmark musical event, featuring an epic and sweeping contemporary score with music supervision and arrangements by Olivier Award® winner Ian Eisendrath, choreography by Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Kelly Devine, and Diana's iconic style reimagined by six-time Tony Award-winning costume designer William Ivey Long.
