Who are the creative minds behind this project?

The musical’s director is Christopher Ashley, who won a Tony award for his work on “Come From Away”, while the choreography is from Kelly Devine, and the show’s music and book are written by David Bryan and Joe DiPetro, who won a Tony for “Memphis” in 2010. DiPietro has mentioned that the 23 songs will have a pop/rock vibe to them. “”Diana is pop-rock, royalty is string quartet, we have paparazzi as punk guitars, and we try to make all those roles live on top of each other,” said the composer in an interview with Playbill.
