3 Vintage Princess Diana Moments DIANA Musical Audiences May See On Netflix & Broadway
We beg your pardon, we're getting another brand new streaming Broadway musical!?
Headlines broke this morning that Diana, the new musical that had only begun previews prior to the Broadway COVID-19 shutdown, is now planning to be released on Netflix ahead of its newly announced rescheduled Broadway opening night May 25, 2021. The production will be not only taking part of this extraordinary filming process, with a thorough safety plan, but they will also be immortalizing the show via a cast album capturing the score.
Coined "The People's Princess," Diana chronicles the triumphs, tribulations, loves and loss of Diana, Princess of Wales who tragically passed in 1997. Come From Away Tony winner Christopher Ashley joins his frequent choreographing collaborator Kelly Devine and award winning Memphis creatives Joe DiPietro who wrote the musical's book and lyrics to a David Bryan score.
Kinky Boots and Wicked alum Jeanna de Waal stars in the musical stepping into Diana's royal heels.
The cast of characters mirrors the real life family tree that Diana became a part of including Prince Charles (Roe Hartrampf) and Queen Elizabeth (Tony winner Judy Kaye).
Though Diana's philanthropy was beloved by many, the Princess of Wales made a substantial mark in the fashion world which we will witness first hand in this musical adaptation. The show has enlisted six-time Tony winner William Ivey Long for this showstopping task. That iconic wedding gown!
Ahead of this exciting forthcoming musical news, we are looking to Diana herself. During her life, she had participated in a multitude of interviews and we are comparing those real life moments with musical moments audiences could potentially anticipate in the forthcoming cast album, Netflix stream and Broadway musical in 2021.
