The world-premiere musical Diana, which begins previews February 19, 2019, in La Jolla Playhouse's Mandell Weiss Theatre, has extended its run by one week. Performances will now continue through April 7.
The new musical about the life of late Princess Diana features the Tony Award-winning Memphis creative team: librettist-lyricist Joe DiPietro, composer-lyricist David Bryan, and Playhouse Artistic Director and 2017 Tony winner Christopher Ashley, who will direct, along with Tony-nominated choreographer Kelly Devine and music supervisor Ian Eisendrath.
Jeanna de Waal will star as Princess Diana in the forthcoming premiere. In the video above, the actor, whose Broadway credits include American Idiot and Kinky Boots, says, “I hope people who didn't know about or weren't aware of her journey leave the theatre with an idea of what she did for the world. She made everyone feel special.”
Tickets for the extension week are now on sale for subscribers and on December 6 for the general public at LaJollaPlayhouse.org or (858) 550-1010.
