Vassar College will serve as an incubator for a new musical being produced about the life of Princess Diana.

The Tony award winning team behind Memphis will be workshopping their Princess Diana musical over the summer at Vassar College’s Powerhouse Theater. The theater has been the breeding ground for some of Broadway’s biggest shows, including a little production known as Hamilton.

In 2013 Lin Manuel Miranda did a reading of what was then called The Hamilton Mixtape. That workshop eventually evolved into the juggernaut Broadway musical that took last year’s Tony Awards by storm. That same season Steve Martin and Edie Brickell did a reading for their award winning Broadway production of Bright Star.

There seems to already be a bit of a buzz around the Princess Diana musical. According to Broadway.com the book is written by Joe DiPietro. Composer and lyricist David Bryan has also been working on the project along with director Christopher Ashley.

There is no word on who the cast may be or when the reading will take place. But it’s been confirmed the project will hit the stage this summer at Vassar College.
