Diana: The Musical features an original book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro, with music and lyrics by David Bryan. The Diana: The Musical score includes 22 original songs. Speaking about the album, David Bryan said: “The making of the cast album was an unbelievable experience. We made it during the shutdown under the protocols. The musicians hadn’t played for a long time. And when they did, they played with such joy. You can feel it on every track.”
The cast recording stars the original Broadway cast of Diana: The Musical, who will also be returning to the show in November. Jeanna de Waal plays the titular Princess Diana, joined by Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth.
