About the Show
A new musical about the life and career of Neil Diamond, told through his classic hit songs.
The story of the renowned musician Neil Diamond is brought to life on stage in a captivating and inspirational new musical featuring his hit songs “Sweet Caroline”, “America”, and “Cracklin’ Rosie”.
From his initial breakout in the music industry in the 1960s to his storied success in the 1970s and beyond, with plenty of heartbreaking disappointments and heart-stopping victories along the way, Neil Diamond has maintained an awe-inspiring level of superstardom for five straight decades. The musical explores just how a poor Jewish boy from Brooklyn grew into one of the most universally loved performers of all time.
Directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Once, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), and with a book by four-time Academy Award® nominee Anthony McCarten (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Two Popes), A Beautiful Noise tells the tale of the good times that never seemed so good.
Starring Tony Award Nominee Will Swenson as Neil Diamond.
" '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."
"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."
"This smoothly produced show’s presentation of his semi-symphonic rock and sentimental balladry failed to convert me. I’m still not a believer...'A Beautiful Noise' merely underscores the truth that, to tweak the cliché, beauty is in the ear of the listener."
