A musical based on the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, is set to premiere on Netflix before its Broadway debut.
Diana: A True Musical Story had been originally slated for an official opening on March 31st after previews earlier that month but production was shut down as a result of Covid-19. It’s now set to open in May 2021, but will now premiere on Netflix before then.
The musical will be filmed without an audience at the Longacre Theatre in New York with the original cast, including Jeanna de Waal as Diana. Producers have been working with the Actors’ Equity Association to ensure safety protocols are followed. Broadway theaters remain officially closed until next year.
Diana: A True Musical Story will now become the first ever Broadway production to premiere on the small screen before its official stage debut. A date for its Netflix debut has yet to be confirmed.
