Lady Di’s fans are flocking to this Broadway show, and I think their reaction says a lot about them.

The story of Diana Spencer’s short but eventful life has been a worldwide favorite since her appearance in the early 1980s as the wife-to-be of Charles, heir to the British throne.

It’s something of a surprise, then, that it’s taken this long for the not-quite-fairy-tale life of “the most photographed woman in the world” to reach the stages of Broadway.

With more than two dozen songs spread across two acts, and enough costume changes to make a runway model’s head spin, Diana: The Musical bring Di’s story to the Great White Way with all of the flash and fashion that was a hallmark of her public life.
