A NEW DECADE FOR PRINCESS DIANA
The decade that just ended was one Princess Diana would have treasured.
Both of her sons – Prince William and Prince Harry, married lovely
women: Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, respectively. Diana now has
4 grandchildren whom she would have loved and adored.
But that was not meant to be. Tragically, she died in a car crash more than 20 years ago. Princess Diana’s legacy continues as musicals about her life are flourishing in 2020 and beyond.
Moved by these thoughts, I revised and re-released Princess Diana the Musical through Heuer Publishing. It features over 25 of my original songs, one I find to be most touching is, ‘Hope in My Heart’. “It’s a beautiful song that Princess Diana sings while visiting a hospital. Even with all of her problems, ‘hope’ is what she carried with her and ‘hope’ is what she gave to all of us. In this new decade, there is still so much trouble in the world and divisiveness in our country. We could use a little ‘hope in our hearts’ right now,” Ms. Javitch reveals.

Princess Diana the Musical has been performed in many community theaters in the United States. Our production entertains audiences about the public and private life of this iconic woman and most beloved princess. Even after many successful runs, I recently revised the script and songs and I’m thrilled to re-release it to America’s theaters through Heuer Publishing Company.
I wrote the music and lyrics and co-authored the book with Elaine Jabenis in 2000. The inspiring story journeys in song with the “People’s Princess” through her trials and tribulations of being an unknown 17-year
old to becoming the most famous woman in the world. In our songs in Princess Diana the Musical, we attempted to capture the grace, charm, compassion and style that was Diana.
