NEW YORK – The Great White Way will have to wait. Diana, a musical based on the life of the Princess of Wales, will be making its debut on Netflix first instead.
The show had been expected to premiere on Broadway on March 31 this year but New York's theatre district was forced to shut down in mid March because of the virus.
The musical is now slated to premiere on Broadway in May next year.
However, fans of the royal family can still catch the production on Netflix from Aug 12.
The producers said in a statement: "We speak for the entire company when we say that we couldn't be more excited to finally be able to share our show with theater lovers everywhere."
"Though there is no substitute for the live theater, we are honoured to be a part of the quality entertainment that Netflix provides its subscribers worldwide."
Diana, which follows the People's Princess' courtship and marriage to Prince Charles, as well as their eventual divorce, is not the first musical to be offered digitally.
