Last chance to put on those Blue Jeans. A Beautiful Noise, the Neil Diamond Musical will play its final performance on June 30th 2024. On it’s last performance A Beautiful Noise will have played  35 previews and 657 regular performances. A Beautiful Noise began Broadway previews on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022 and opened on Sunday, December 4th. The show will be embarking on a North American tour launching this fall in Providence, Rhode Island.

As of Monday, A Beautiful Noise has grossed almost $63,000,000 and been seen by almost half a million people representing all 50 states, a leader in the post-COVID theatrical landscape. Additionally, the show was the first production after the pandemic to have its world premiere at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre, revitalizing the return to the out-of-town tryout, an economic engine for many cities in the country and a much needed creative step for shows in development.

A Beautiful Noise stars “American Idol” winner Nick Fradiani as ‘Neil Diamond – Then,’ Tony Award and Drama Desk Award nominee Mark Jacoby as ‘Neil Diamond – Now,’ Amber Ardolino as ‘Marcia Murphey,’ and Shirine Babb as ‘Doctor.’ They are joined by Becky Gulsvig as ‘Jaye Posner;’ Michael McCormick as ‘Fred Weintraub/Tommy O’Rourke;’ Tom Alan Robbins as ‘Bert Berns/Kieve Diamond’; and Bri Sudia as ‘Ellie Greenwich/Rose Diamond.’ 

The ensemble, swings, and standbys include Neal Benari (standby for ‘Neil Diamond – Now’), Dianna Marie Barger (ensemble), Mateus Leite Cardoso (swing), Gabrielle Djenné (swing), Jordan Dobson (swing), Ninako Donville (swing), Paige Faure (standby for ‘Ellie Greenwich/Jaye Posner/Marcia Murphey/Rose Diamond’), Kalonjee Gallimore (ensemble), Anthony J. Garcia (ensemble), Jess LeProtto (ensemble), Tatiana Lofton (ensemble), Alec Michael Ryan (swing), Aveena Sawyer (ensemble), Deandre Sevon (ensemble), Vanessa Sierra (ensemble), Annie Wallace (ensemble), and Sean Watkinson (swing).

A Beautiful Noise includes a score of Diamond’s most beloved songs, a book which four-time Academy Award-nominee Anthony McCarten distilled from hundreds of hours of conversations between himself and the legendary singer-songwriter, direction by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, and choreography by Olivier Award winner and four-time Tony Award nominee Steven Hoggett. 

With his first break into songwriting in the 1960s and his meteoric rise in the 1970s, and plenty of crushing disappointments and heart-stopping triumphs along the way, Neil Diamond has maintained an almost unthinkable level of superstardom for five straight decades. How did a poor Jewish kid from Brooklyn become one of the most universally adored showmen of all time? There’s only one way Diamond wanted to tell it: a musical set to his era-defining smash hits that entranced the world.
