The producers of “Diana: A New Musical” about the late Diana, Princess of Wales, have announced it will premiere on Netflix next year ahead of the planned Broadway opening.
The show had begun previews on March 2 and was scheduled to open on March 31 at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway.
But Covid-19 caused the production to be placed on hiatus.
The musical is now set to open on Broadway on May 25, 2021.
“Diana,” directed by Christopher Ashley, will be filmed without an audience on the stage of the Longacre Theatre and will feature the original Broadway cast including Jeanna de Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles, and two-time Tony Award winner Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth.
No date for the Netflix premiere has been announced and CNN has reached out to the streaming company for comment.
