A Beautiful Noise will be showing live this time at the Broadhurst Theatre on Wednesday 21st February 2024! The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "America," are all featured 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 remarkable true narrative of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the tunes that shaped Diamond’s career, much like Jersey Boys before it.
The story follows an talented 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 go on, he walks away from one marriage and another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” The New York Times shares.
According to prior reports, singer-songwriter Neil Diamond-Then will be played by Tony nominee Will Swenson, who most recently appeared in the Off-Broadway revival of Assassins. Neil Diamond-Now will be played by Mark Jacoby, Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer, four-time Oscar nominee 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 Tony nominee Emilio Sosa, and sound design by Tony Award winner Jessica Paz.
Essentially, The Guardian 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.
Head over to the vibrant city of for a memorable evening this season that will leave a lasting impression on musical lovers and casual theatre goers alike!
