Diana, the Musical Star, Retaliates After Princess Diana’s Show Is Called “Disrespectful”
Actress Jeanna de Waal defended Diana, The Musical after it was dubbed “tacky” and “disrespectful” of Princess Diana.
Countless celebrities have impersonated Princess Diana, from Kristen Stewart in Spencer to Emma Corrin and Elizabeth DeBicki in The Crown.
However, one of the most recent attempts has enraged fans, with some calling the new Diana, The Musical “tacky” and even “disrespectful” to the late royal.
Following the show’s Broadway premiere, the star defended it against recent criticism.
“I’m curious why people think it’s great to make a really serious film about her, but it’s terrible to make a light-hearted musical,” Princess Diana actress Jeanna de Waal told Variety in a story published on Friday, Nov.
The musical has been dubbed a “sensational flop” that “abuses a tabloid telling of Diana’s life for a few laughs and a cheap song,” according to the publication.
“They’re both produced privately for profit, and they’re both entertainment,” Jeanna remarked, ostensibly referring to Spencer.
So, why is one in good shape while the other isn’t?”
“The audiences who come to see our show, who dress up in tiaras and boo at Charles, are just as deserving of their entertainment as someone who wants to cry at the movies,” she continued.
“Being exaggerative is literally the point,” Jeanna continued.
“It’s a musical, and Diana is said to be the most fun, silly, rebellious, and spontaneous person on the planet.
And I believe she would enjoy it.”
“I love that our show doesn’t take itself seriously,” the actress, who also starred in Kinky Boots, said of the musical’s tone.
And so, if you want, you can judge it for being that,” she said.
Frank Marshall, the show’s producer, backed up his work as well.
“This was never meant to be a serious study,” he said in an interview with Variety.
“This is one way of telling her story, and we have to accept that it was a tabloid story,” she says.
“We’re trying our best to take you on the journey with us,” Roe Hartrampf, the actor who plays Prince Charles, simply added.
Diana, The Musical “may well win the prize as…,” according to The New York Times in its review.
