Robyn Hurder To Play Final Performance in A BEAUTIFUL NOISE Next Month
Unfortunately it’s time to start packing up those Blue Jeans for Robyn. Today, producers Ken Davenport and Bob Gaudio announced that Robyn Hurder, who received the Chita Rivera Award for Outstanding Dancer in a Broadway Show and a Drama Desk Award nomination for her portrayal of Marcia Murphey will play her final performance at the Broadhurst Theatre in A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical on Sunday, December 17.
Casting for the role of Marcia Murphey will be announced at a future date.
Theatrely’s Editor-in-Chief Kobi Kassal named Hurder’s Act II standout performance of Forever In Blue Jeans as the Best Number on stage in 2022.
The current cast of A Beautiful Noise also features “American Idol” winner Nick Fradiani as Neil Diamond – Then, Tony Award and Drama Desk Award nominee Mark Jacoby as Neil Diamond – Now, and Shirine Babb as Doctor. They are joined by Jessie Fisher 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.
A Beautiful Noise includes a score of Diamond’s most beloved songs, a book 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.
The musical tells the story of Neil Diamonds and 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.
