A Beautiful Noise will be taking the stage live this season at the prestigious Broadhurst Theatre on Thursday 2nd November 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond are the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. His greatest hits, including "Song Sung Blue," are all featured in the production, which will be performed by an outstanding cast under the direction of Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an uplifting, thrilling and vibrant 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 shaped Diamond’s career, much like other iconic Broadway hits before it.
The story follows an talented Jewish artist from Flatbush, whose family name is actually 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 bite him hard, 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 prior 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 Acclaimed 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 Tony Award winner 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 New York for a memorable evening this season that will leave a lasting memories for musical enthusiasts and casual listeners alike!
