A Beautiful Noise will be taking the stage live this period at the Broadhurst Theatre on Friday 2nd February 2024! The life and work of Neil Diamond are the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. His greatest hits, including "Sweet Caroline," are all included in the production, which will be performed by an exceptional cast under the direction of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an uplifting, exciting and vibrant musical memoir that tells the remarkable true narrative of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the songs that shaped Diamond’s career, much like other iconic Broadway hits before it.
The story follows an ambitious Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is called Diamond. As he grows up, he finds his feet as a performer at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village, immediately signs a record deal that comes back to bite him hard, and as years pass by, he comes away from one marriage after another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” The Guardian shares.
According to previous reports, singer-songwriter Neil Diamond-Then will be played by Tony nominee Will Swenson, who most recently played in the Off-Broadway revival of Assassins. Neil Diamond-Now will be played by Tony contender Mark Jacoby, talented performer Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Acclaimed director esteemed director Michael Mayer, highly acclaimed screenwriter Anthony McCarten, and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Steven Hoggett. The musical will have scenic design by Tony winner David Rockwell, lighting design by four-time Tony winner Kevin Adams, costume design by Tony nominee Emilio Sosa, and sound design by Tony Award winner Jessica Paz.
Essentially, Broadway World writes the show does not actually play by all the rules of jukebox theater. "It is initially a hit parade within a dramatic showcase of Diamond’s 1960s beginnings in the first act, which is subtly followed by a second act that is set of sequined, post-1960s concerts spliced with portraits of a broken marriage and lonely childhood, and then a denouement of hardcore emotional resolve,” the review continues.
Head over to New York for a spectacular night this month that will leave a lasting memories for musical lovers and casual theatre goers alike!
