It has been confirmed that the musical, which had begun previews in March 2020 before being closed due to the pandemic, will stream on Netflix from the 1st October.
The Broadway stage show is set to be available to stream on the popular streaming service from the 1st of October, ahead of it returning to the Longacre Theatre where the production was filmed without an audience. Directed by Christopher Ashley, the production is set to return to the stage from December – pending the government’s approval of Broadway reopening.
As it stands, the musical will open to audiences from the 1st December, with an official opening night set for the 16th December, with tickets on sale until the 20th November 2022.
The production stars Jeanna de Waal (Kinky Boots, American Idiot) in the titular role, alongside Roe Hartrampf (The Bad Guys) as Prince Charles, Erin Davie (Sunday in the Park with George) as Camilla Parker Bowles, and two-time Tony winner Judy Kaye (Nice Work If You Can Get It) as Queen Elizabeth.
Diana: A True Musical story follows Diana from her first meeting with the Royal Family, her wedding and sensational media profile through to her death in the 1990s. It includes book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro, and music and lyrics by David Bryan.
As well as director Christopher Ashley, the production’s creative team includes choreographer Kelly Devine, musical supervisor Ian Eisendrath and sound designer Gareth Owen. Elsewhere, the musical features costume design by six-time Tony winner William Ivey Long, set design by David Zinn, lighting design by Natasha Katz and orchestrations by John Clancy.
