Diana Musical Announces Netflix Premiere, Broadway Dates

A release date for the upcoming Broadway musical Diana has finally been announced. It will be released for streaming on Netflix on October 1. Its Broadway run at the Longacre Theatre is scheduled to start December 1, with an opening date of December 16.

Diana originally began previews on March 2, 2020, and was scheduled to open on March 31 at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway before halting performances due to the coronavirus pandemic. Director Christopher Ashley led the musical to be filmed for Netflix without an audience on the stage of the Longacre Theatre last fall and will feature the original Broadway cast.

The complete cast of Diana includes Zach Adkins, Tessa Alves, Ashley Andrews, Austen Danielle Bohmer, Holly Ann Butler, Stephen Carrasco, Bruce Dow, Richard Gatta, Lauren E.J. Hamilton, Emma Hearn, Shaye B. Hopkins, Andre Jordan, Gareth Keegan, Nathan Lucrezio, Tomǡs Matos, Chris Medlin, Laura Stracko, and Bethany Ann Tesarck.

Diana brings us face-to-face with one of the 20th century’s most compelling figures in this landmark musical event. The musical has book & lyrics by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro and music & lyrics by Tony Award-winner David Bryan (the same writing team behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis), with direction by Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley (Come From Away), choreography by Olivier Award-winner and Tony Award-nominee Kelly Devine (Come From Away) and features an epic and sweeping contemporary score with music supervision and arrangements by Olivier Award-winner Ian Eisendrath (Come From Away).
