‘Diana’ musical streaming ahead of Broadway debut

OUR live performance-starved musical theatre is agog at news that “Diana: The Musical” is coming to Netflix soon.

Celebrating the life and enduring legacy of Princess Diana, the new Broadway show, directed by Christopher Ashley  of “Come From Away” fame and choreographer of the same musical, Kelly Devine, was filmed live from the stage and will make its global debut as a special presentation on Netflix on October 1 before, covid-permitting, hitting the Broadway stage in November.

“Diana: The Musical” tells the story of 19-year-old Diana Spencer and her rise to become Princess of Wales, defying all expectations to emerge as her own woman.

Filmed in 2020, the performers include Jeanna de Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf  as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and Judy Kaye playing the role of the Queen.
