Overall, the show is an uplifting, captivating and vibrant musical memoir that tells the untold true tale of how America's greatest hitmaker became a celebrity. It is uniquely set to the melodies that shaped Diamond’s career, much like other iconic Broadway hits before it.
The story follows an talented Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is actually 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 haunt him, and as years go on, he comes away from one marriage after another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” Broadway World shares.
According to prior reports, singer-songwriter Neil Diamond-Then will be played by Will Swenson, who most recently played in the Off-Broadway revival of Assassins. Neil Diamond-Now will be played by Tony contender Mark Jacoby, Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Highly regarded director Michael Mayer, renowned Anthony McCarten, and Critically acclaimed choreographer Steven Hoggett. The musical will have scenic design by award-winning scenic designer David Rockwell, lighting design by four-time Tony winner Kevin Adams, costume design by renowned costume designer Emilio Sosa, and sound design by esteemed sound designer Jessica Paz.
Essentially, Broadway World discusses that 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.
