A Beautiful Noise will be performing live this season at the iconic Broadhurst Theatre on Wednesday 6th September 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond are the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. His greatest hits, including "Song Sung Blue," are all featured in the production, which will be performed by an exceptional cast under the guidance of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an uplifting, captivating and energy-filled musical memoir that tells the untold true story of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the songs that shaped Diamond’s career, much like The Carole King Musical before it.
The story follows an anxious Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is called Diamond. As he grows up, he finds his place 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 walks away from one marriage and another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” Broadway World shares.
According to previous reports, singer-songwriter Neil Diamond-Then will be played by Will Swenson, who most recently appeared 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 Michael Mayer, four-time Oscar nominee Anthony McCarten, and Olivier Award-winning choreographer choreographer Steven Hoggett. The musical will have scenic design by Tony winner David Rockwell, lighting design by highly acclaimed lighting designer Kevin Adams, costume design by renowned costume designer Emilio Sosa, and sound design by Tony Award winner Jessica Paz.
Essentially, Broadway World discusses that the show doesn't 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 evening this month that will leave a lasting impression on musical enthusiasts and casual listeners alike!
