Netflix will bring a live recording of Diana: The Musical to screens this autumn.

The piece (which was filmed without an audience on Broadway during lockdown) has an official release date of October 1 – two months prior to preview performances resuming on stage in New York City.

The production had been due to open on Broadway in March 2020 but was forced to abandon its plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
