The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. His greatest hits, including "Cracklin' Rosie," are all presented in the production, which will be performed by an stellar cast under the direction of Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an inspiring, thrilling and vibrant musical memoir that tells the inspiring true tale of how America's greatest hitmaker became a icon. It is uniquely set to the tunes that characterized 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, continuing to sign a record deal that comes back to bite him hard, and as years pass by, he comes away from one marriage and another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” The Guardian 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, talented performer Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Tony Award-winning director esteemed director Michael Mayer, four-time Oscar nominee screenwriter Anthony McCarten, and Olivier Award-winning choreographer 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 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.
