Princess Diana, The Musical tells the story of Charles and Diana; focussing on their courtship, their marriage and her relationship with her children and the rest of the Royal Family.
At Diana’s death, ardent admirer, songwriter and playwright Karen Sokolof Javitch expressed her grief by writing songs about the princess. She wrote the 33 songs about Princess Diana to describe her life with Prince Charles their courtship, their troubled marriage and their divorce. The songs reflect Diana’s transition from being an unknown 19-year old to becoming the most famous woman in the world.
Ms. Javitch read Andrew Mortion’s book, DIANA: HER TRUE STORY, and teamed with award-winning author, Elaine Jabenis to write a script.
The production not only includes duets between Princess Diana and Prince Charles, but the show also feature Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, the Queen Mum, Fergie and Prince William. There is humor, laughter, excitement, adoration, fun, jealousy, love and much more expressed in the songs.
The ballad that will bring tears to the eyes of all Princess Diana lovers is “There Was a Time.” We all know that she loved Prince Charles but we have doubts that he ever loved her.
“We are still so saddened by the death of this wonderful woman who gave so much to the world,” Ms. Javitch says. “Writing PRINCESS DIANA, THE MUSICAL is my way of trying to keep her memory alive.”
