Diana - San Diego, CA (Regional)

It's 1981 and the world is ready for a royal wedding - but is the 20-year-old bride ready for what comes after? Following her fairytale union, Princess Diana faces a distant husband, an unmovable monarchy and constant media scrutiny. But her unabashed honesty, modern perspective and gentle compassion galvanizes a nation, even as it threatens the royal family's hold on England. Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and the creative team behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis bring to the Playhouse this highly-anticipated musical, featuring an eclectic original score, from classical melodies to 1980s-inspired pop and rock music.
