Editorial Reviews

After listening to the more than 30 songs in this beautifully-orchestrated album, Susan Maxwell Skinner, a former member of Diana's Press Corps and author of 3 books on the Princess said, "I love your production! The musical's songs are not only hummable but very entertaining in a true Broadway style. Their lyrics tell Diana's story with insight and compassion for the major parties involved in this intriguing saga."

If you're a staunch monarchist with a brain, you WILL NOT enjoy this.

If you're a staunch monarchist and very dim, you WILL enjoy this !

If you like musicals and kitch, really bad lyrics and muzak, you WILL enjoy this !

The lyrics are SO bad (Diana : "Should I throw up now, or later ?" or the Queen Mum describing Diana's kids as "... The heir and the spare of the monarchy").

Some good little tunes in the album, and lyrics so appalingly bad they are hilarious, it's worth a punt for a few quid.

Sample lyrics:
"Everything happens at Buckingham Palace at the Palace at the Palace..." (Really, does it? Really, does it? Really, does it?) (party guests)
"Should I throw up now or later?" (Mmm, depends...who's around?) (Princess Diana)
"He's the manliest man and the grandliest gran" (The what?) (Princess Diana)
"Then she died, and now she's gone..." (Really? She died, and now she's gone? Both those things?) (Princess Diana)
Anyway, I laughed all the way through it. But you know, I listened to it. It's insidiously addictive.

A Kid's Review on July 29, 2006
Format: Audio CD
This is such a cool CD!!! It's soooo amazing!!! Why isn't this topping the charts! Karen Sokolof Javitch is a genius--she's right up there with Mozart and Gershwin. The rhythmic Broadway tunes get your toes tappin' and fingers snappin'!! Each song on the CD is worth listening to again and again and again! My utter favorite is He's Such a Man, like the reviewer below. But I like the reprise!! It's SOOOOOO HILARIOUS!!!!!!! Listen to it it is GENIUS baby!!! Here are the lyrics:

Diana: He's such a man! He's so different from all of those boys I've seen around!

Charles: Darling, I brought some books by Sir Laurence van der Post to read with you!

Diana: He's such a man! He's more charming and worldly than anyone in this town!

Charles: I brought my fishing poles! Do you like to fish?

Diana: And he treats me with respect and dignity!

Charles: I invited all the Navy officers to dine with us. I hope you don't mind.

Diana: And he's always a real gentleman!

Charles: Darling, now that we're married you don't have to call me Sir anymore!

Diana: He bowed and took my hand!

Charles: Do you like my new kilts?

Diana: He's the manliest man!

Charles: Want to see my muscle?

Diana: That the world has ever known! He's such a man! He's such a man!

*A picture of Camilla Parker-Bowles falls out of Prince Charles's diary*

Diana: Oh, Charles, let me help you!

Charles: Diana! It's just one picture of her--it doesn't mean anything to me! Look, Diana, it's just a picture of a time from my past--you're my future, you're my Queen!

Diana: Charles, you told me you were over her!

Charles: I am!

Diana: Charles, I am your wife!

To say that this bit is bad is an insult to bad bits. It sounds as if the lyricist read a bunch of sympathy cards, smoked some pot, got emotional, then wrote her feelings down on a napkin. She then gave them to an orchestrator with about twenty minutes to arrange the music.

Even the Lifetime network would have declined this script. Only buy this as a gag gift for people that you despise. It's awful.

A Kid's Review on May 25, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Wow I LOVE this CD! My mom's gonna order it for me and I just can't wait! If you want to listen to samples visit JMR Productions Website. My favorite song is "He's Such a Man!" It's so bouncy and fun, it has me dancin' and singin' along every time! A bit of the script is available online--search "Princess Diana the Musical" and it should turn up. The musical's pretty good and very accurate. I just love the music--maybe it's not the best music ever, but it rocks for me!
