A Beautiful Noise will be performing live this season at the Broadhurst Theatre on Wednesday 22nd November 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "Cracklin' Rosie," 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 uplifting, captivating and energy-filled musical memoir that tells the untold true narrative of how America's greatest hitmaker became a celebrity. It is uniquely set to the melodies that characterized Diamond’s career, much like The Carole King Musical before it.
The story follows an ambitious Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is called Diamond. As he grows up, he finds his feet as a performer at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village, continuing to sign 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,” The New York Times shares.
According to early reports, singer-songwriter Neil Diamond-Then will be played by Tony nominee Will Swenson, who most recently starred 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, renowned screenwriter Anthony McCarten, and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Steven Hoggett. The musical will have scenic design by Tony winner 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, 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 lovers and casual theatre goers alike! Secure your seats now and witness the magic of A Beautiful Noise! Don't miss out on this remarkable opportunity to watch the highly anticipated musical sensation live on stage!
