PUBLIUS SPECIAL GUEST: Karen Sokolof Javitch, is the award winning creator and song-writer of the Princess Diana Musical.
August marks the 22nd anniversary of the passing of Princess Diana and many will be remembering the life of Princess Diana. Karen Sokolof Javitch has written Princess Diana: The Musical which brings to life the Princess’ relationship with Prince Charles – focusing on their courtship, marriage and divorce.
Karen wrote the 27 songs for the musical. The songs reflect Diana’s transition from being an unknown 19-year old to becoming the most famous woman in the world. “I wrote the show because I was devastated when she was killed in a car crash (Aug. 31, 1997). I sat down at the piano to console myself and wrote many songs for her and about her, now knowing that someday I would put them into a musical.”
