A Beautiful Noise will be showing live this time at the iconic Broadhurst Theatre on Thursday 31st August 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond are the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "Song Sung Blue," are all presented in the production, which will be performed by an stellar cast under the guidance of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an inspiring, captivating and vibrant musical memoir that tells the untold true story of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the songs that defined Diamond’s career, much like The Carole King Musical before it.
The story follows an anxious Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is actually 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 comes away from one marriage after another. "Amid all that, Diamond evolves into a globe-trotting, sequin-wearing, arena-playing star,” The Guardian shares.
According to early 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 Mark Jacoby, Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Acclaimed director Michael Mayer, highly acclaimed Anthony McCarten, and Olivier Award-winning 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, The Guardian discusses that 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 New York for a spectacular evening this season 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 long-awaited musical sensation live on stage!
