After cancelling stage performances in 2020, Diana: The Musical is set to stream on Netflix this autumn.

The Broadway musical about Lady Diana, Princess of Wales will stream on Netflix later this year.

A production of Diana: The Musical was filmed without an audience during lockdown and it’s set to arrive on the streaming platform on October 1.

Diana: The Musical was supposed to open on the Great White Way in March 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it had to close.

The stage production will open its doors to audience members officially on 1 Decemebr, two months after it lands on Netflix.

The musical will, naturally, explore Princess Diana’s life within the royal family.

In a statement, the producers of Diana: The Musical said: “The chance to share our show, first with Netflix’s global audience, and then welcoming a live audience back on Broadway is something we’ve been dreaming about for more than a year.

“We could not be more thrilled to finally share both the film and the Broadway musical with the world.”

The musical is directed by Christopher Ashley and will star Jeanna de Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth II.

The show’s official Instagram page is already full to the brim with snippets from musical numbers and first looks of the cast in costume.

If, for some reason, you feel like seeing the show in person rather than from the convenience of your own home, tickets for the stage show are on sale now.

Diana: The Musical will return to the Longacre Theatre in Manhattan for preview performances on Wednesday 1 December. The show will then open officially on Thursday, 16 December.

Diana: The Musical arrives on Netflix on Friday 1 October.
