Looks like The Crown is about to have some Princess Diana competition.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that a little more than two weeks before it was scheduled to open in late March, Diana, the new Broadway musical about the Princess of Wales (really) had to postpone production due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, audiences will reportedly be able to enjoy the show nonetheless, as the show will be filmed and released on Netflix in the near future.
From the Tony-winning writers of Memphis and director Christopher Ashley of Come From Away, Diana is described as a musical about Lady Spencer, "a woman who chose to be fearless, and as a result became timeless." The Broadway cast includes Jeanna de Waal as Princess Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles, and Tony winner Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth.
Diana, which made its world premiere last year at La Jolla Playhouse in Southern California, is expected to be filmed without an audience at the Longacre Theatre, where previews began March 2, just one week before the Broadway shutdown. The show will reportedly hit Netflix before its expected real-life opening date on Broadway of May 25, 2021.
