In what has generally been a nightmare scenario for Broadway, one of the first bright spots of the pandemic has been the news that the new musical Diana was being filmed for a Netflix release prior to an actual opening night next spring. That is particularly wonderful news for our Ms. Broadway September 2020, Jeanna de Waal. A Broadway, off-Broadway, national tour and regional theater veteran, she's paid her dues and is now the star of the show! She's played all sorts of roles - from the chipper and cunning Glinda in Wicked to the evil backstabbing bad girl in Carrie - taking on the part of a beloved real-life historic figure like Princess Diana, must be a challenge and a dream come true. Congratulations, Jeanna!
