Diana: The Musical, originally set to be released on Broadway back in March 2020, will now appear on the streaming giant Netflix. The Broadway show was recorded without an audience during theatre closures caused by Covid-19.

It is set to launch on the world’s largest subscription-based streaming platform on October 1, 2021.

The biographical show will debut on Broadway in December when live-audiences are allowed to return to theatres.

In a statement, the production 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 all 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 will follow a fictional take on Diana’s life, which will include scenes of her marital breakdown with Prince Charles.

There are reportedly many controversial scenes in the production including one in which the Queen, played by renowned theatre icon Judy Kaye, tells Diana: “In the old days we would have chopped off your head.”

There are also rumours that the show contains scenes depicting self-harm.

Most shocking of all to critics who have seen the show is a scene of Diana in bed with James Hewitt as a theatrical take on their relationship.

The musical is expected to end with reports of Diana’s death in the tragic 1997 car crash.

It was reported when the show debuted in March that the musical would be a story of a “fearless princess who became timeless”.

Diana’s theatrical counterpart will be played by Jeanna de Waal who has previously starred in Wicked, Kinky Boots, Finding Neverland and American Idiot.

Other cast members include Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles and Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles.
