A Beautiful Noise will be taking the stage live this season at the iconic Broadhurst Theatre on Thursday 29th February 2024! The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "Cracklin' Rosie," are all included in the production, which will be performed by an stellar cast under the guidance of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an emotionally-charged, thrilling and energy-filled musical memoir that tells the inspiring true narrative of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the melodies that characterized Diamond’s career, much like Jersey Boys 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 and another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” Broadway World shares.
According to previous 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 Highly regarded director Michael Mayer, four-time Oscar nominee 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 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 New York for a unforgettable evening this month that will leave a lasting memories for musical enthusiasts and casual theatre goers alike!
