Set to the tunes of Alanis Morissette's 1995 Grammy-winning album by the same name, this world premiere musical is directed by Diane Paulus, the same director who brought us Waitress and Finding Neverland, and features a book by Diablo Cody, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Juno.
Starlight's Horticulture Team Works Hard to Keep the Grounds Beautiful
Starlight's horticulture staff is hard at work beautifying the grounds in preparation for our summer season. Maintaining our outdoor spaces is a year-round commitment and a large percentage of our flowers are grown during the winter in our greenhouse behind the stage. Come summer, we're tending 29 flower beds, 46 hanging baskets, two rain gardens and thousands of tropical plants, shrubs and trees. Stop and smell the flowers the next time you're out, as we love to see our patrons enjoying the fresh air and scenery that surrounds our venue.

New details from the Princess Diana Musical have emerged after a lab presentation for potential investors in New York earlier in May.

Diana is scheduled to open at the La Jolla Playhouse in California next February.
