Ditto for Netflix's streaming of ''Diana, the Musical,'' which begins Oct. 1. Will it boost the N.Y. box office or take away from it?

The first time I recall seeing a filmed version of a Broadway musical playing while it was still running in NYC was ''Memphis.''

It was beautifully shot, but only screened in select movie theaters around the country in 2011; it wasn't streamed to folks at home.

Conventional wisdom used to insist that a Broadway show couldn't be made into a movie until it had closed.

Interesting coincidence: ''Come From Away,'' ''Diana'' and ''Memphis'' were all directed by Tony winner Christopher Ashley.
