A Beautiful Noise will be performing live this time at the iconic Broadhurst Theatre on Saturday 30th September 2023! The life and work of Neil Diamond is the subject of a brand-new Broadway musical. The greatest hits, including "Sweet Caroline," are all featured in the production, which will be performed by an outstanding cast under the guidance of Tony nominee Will Swenson.
Overall, the show is an uplifting, captivating and energy-filled musical memoir that tells the remarkable true story of how America's greatest hitmaker became a legend. It is uniquely set to the tunes that characterized Diamond’s career, much like other iconic Broadway hits 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 haunt him, and as years pass by, he walks 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 Tony nominee Will Swenson, who most recently played in the Off-Broadway revival of Assassins. Neil Diamond-Now will be played by Mark Jacoby, talented performer Robyn Hurder as Marcia, while Linda Powell is cast as the Doctor.
The creative team comprises Highly regarded director esteemed director Michael Mayer, four-time Oscar nominee screenwriter 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 highly acclaimed lighting designer Kevin Adams, costume design by Tony nominee Emilio Sosa, and sound design by Tony Award winner Jessica Paz.
Essentially, Broadway World writes 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 spectacular night this month that will leave a lasting impression on musical lovers and casual theatre goers alike! Purchase 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!
