Production is in full swing for Obsessed, the Broadway musical that delves into the life of Diane Warren, a songwriting superstar known for her impactful contributions to music, including the recent hit with Taylor Swift, Say Don’t Go.

Following a successful workshop in New York, led by Kathleen Marshall and penned by Joe DiPietro, producers Michael Cohl and Irit TenHengel are set to bring Warren’s story to the stage.

Full details are to be announced.

Diane’s journey from a rebellious teenager in Los Angeles, overcoming personal challenges including Asperger’s Syndrome, to achieving global fame as a songwriter with hits across major artists, encapsulates a narrative of persistence and unparalleled success.

The title Obsessed aptly captures the essence of Diane Warren’s career, inspired by the music industry legend Clive Davis who described Warren’s dedication to her craft as obsessive.

This obsession has led to an extraordinary career with hits for a wide array of stars including Beyonce, Cher, and Lady Gaga.
