Diana Ross - Her Life, Love and Legacy

Diana Ross - Her Life, Love and Legacy

The magic of Diana Ross has touched millions of hearts around the world.

Her magnificent life and unparalleled career have influenced music, film, fashion and stage with her spirit forever woven in the fabric of humanity. 2019 will be remembered as a milestone in history with a year-long Diamond Diana Celebration, marking the 75th birthday of one of the greatest entertainers of all time.


We're very excited to be joining in the celebrations at The Flavel with a screening of Diana's Live in Central Park concert from 1983, now remastered!

Filmed over the course of two days in 1983, when over 1 million people united on the Great Lawn of Central Park to experience a once-in-a-lifetime live moment that defined a generation.  When a freak storm hit, despite Ross’s best efforts to take on Mother Nature and continue, the concert had to be canceled. She announced to the crowd she would return the following day to perform again and they all returned. The concert seen around the world showcased the trailblazing entertainer of young and old, bringing together all ethnicities and nationalities to experience the voice and heart of Diana Ross.


The show was originally directed by the award-winning Steve Binder, who along with Diana has put together a presentation that will feature never-before-seen footage, the best of the Central Park concert and inspired, heartfelt messages from the Ross family, including sons Ross and Evan and daughters Rhonda and Chudney, with Tracee Ellis Ross delivering a passionate introduction to the presentation capturing the magnitude of the event. Highlighting the superstar status of Diana, together with archive footage it celebrates her three decade legacy and what made this unexpected turn of events and concert so iconic.
