Diana

World-Premiere Musical

February 19 - April 7, 2019 [New Extended Dates] | Mandell Weiss Theatre

Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro | Music and Lyrics by David Bryan

Choreographed by Kelly Devine | Directed by Christopher Ashley


In 1981, an assistant kindergarten teacher married the Prince of Wales and, overnight, became the most famous woman in the world. But behind the fairytale, there was a troubled marriage and a young woman struggling to find her voice. Facing an entrenched monarchy and unprecedented media scrutiny, Princess Diana surprises everyone – including herself – as she grows into a global phenomenon and manages to change the world.

Christopher Ashley and the writers behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis (Joe DiPietro and David Bryan) create this highly anticipated musical, featuring an epic and sweeping contemporary score.

Dial M for Murder

Jul 25 - Aug 23, 2020

A new version of the celebrated murder mystery that inspired Hitchcock’s masterpiece! Tony Wendice is convinced that his wife Margot has been cheating on him. Now it seems that the affair is over, but in his jealousy, Tony spins a web of suspicion and deception that will tighten around himself and Margot and ensnare them both in danger, recrimination, and even violence. The New York Times calls Dial M for Murder “a cat-and-mouse waiting game, with enough twists and sudden hitches to keep the chills and thrills running.” Acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (Scotland Road, Wait Until Dark) brings us an edge-of-your-seat, world-premiere adaptation of this modern classic, directed in high style by Globe veteran Stafford Arima (Allegiance, Red Velvet) in our most intimate performance space.

Henry V

Aug 11 - Sep 13, 2020

“Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more!”

Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, one of the most important Shakespeare directors working today, returns to the Globe to take on Bard’s thrilling history play. The year is 1415, and the young and reckless Prince Hal has left his wild partying days behind and matured into sober and thoughtful kingship. He defies the insults of the French royals and rallies a ragtag group of English soldiers to sail across the English Channel on a long-shot invasion of the mighty kingdom of France. Full of action and the electrifying language that marks Shakespeare at his height, Henry V is an unflinching look at warfare and power, and a rousing portrait of courage against all odds.

Walks of Life

Jul 21 - Sep 30, 2020

By Blindspot Collective
La Jolla Playhouse Commission

Walks of Life is an original work of auditory theatre featuring short scenes by playwrights and composers from across the country. In the midst of a pandemic that fractures and isolates our communities, this aural experience offers the opportunity to safely and imaginatively reconnect with each other by bearing witness to life's intimate moments captured entirely in sound. Participants experience the piece while walking
independently through their own neighborhoods, and over the course of three 30-minute parts, they are introduced to characters and stories that might be unfolding in the homes around them.
