December 4th, 2022

" 'A Beautiful Noise' is a suitable tribute to him; in its biggest numbers it resembles an old-school Vegas-style impersonation show, recreating concert moments for the benefit of an audience that is happy to embark on a musical nostalgia trip."

"The thing is, there’s just not much of a show there. The show and the audience aren’t here for the storm clouds, they’re here for the good times, which never seemed so good."

Entertainment Weekly
December 6th, 2022

"Those going to 'A Beautiful Noise' want to be entertained and entertained they will be. It very well might be a long-running hit like that musical, especially considering Diamond's popularity. It's just too bad it leaves you wanting more."

“ 'A Beautiful Noise' is victorious, but not without a few rough bumps along the way — much like the trajectory of Diamond’s life."
