What I liked

I am not a fan of most musicals. I am not a Royal watcher or a particular fan of Lady Diana. I generally avoid one person shows. This show made me happy and I was all set to not dig it, but a believable, warm, and winning performance of all the characters by Charlotte Munson was charming and splendid to watch. I really liked “Red Flags” out of all the songs.

What I didn't like

I would like every show to use microphones, especially this one, so that we could let the actor go softer in quiet moments and not have to carry over the sound.

My overall impression

Fantastic new musical that works for theater-goers, historians, and Royal watchers alike. No previous awareness needed to enjoy. Brilliantly quick-staged and given life by a wonderful performance by Charlotte Munson.
