A Beautiful Noise will be showing live this season at the Broadhurst Theatre on Sunday 12th November 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "Song Sung Blue," are all featured in the production, which will be performed by an exceptional cast under the direction of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an inspiring, thrilling and energy-filled musical memoir that tells the remarkable true tale 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 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 haunt him, 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 prior 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, renowned screenwriter Anthony McCarten, and Critically acclaimed choreographer choreographer Steven Hoggett. The musical will have scenic design by award-winning scenic designer David Rockwell, lighting design by highly acclaimed lighting designer Kevin Adams, costume design by Tony nominee Emilio Sosa, and sound design by esteemed sound designer Jessica Paz.
Essentially, Variety writes 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 the vibrant city of for a spectacular night this month that will leave a lasting impression on musical enthusiasts and casual theatre goers alike!
