"Forever in Blue Jeans" and forever a Broadway fav! Robyn Hurder, currently starring as Marcia Murphey in A Beautiful Noise on Broadway, may think Neil Diamond and Will Swenson are legends, but we know she's one too! To celebrate her time as Neil Diamond's second wife, Theatrely caught up with the star at the stage door of the Broadhurst Theatre for the latest round of Stage Door Speed Round.

This digital series is the perfect companion for theatre fans near and far. Since most of our favorite stars are still not signing Playbills outside the theatre due to COVID restrictions and safety protocols, Theatrely has you covered with this virtual experience!

The story of the legendary Neil Diamond comes to life on stage in an uplifting new musical featuring all his hit songs, including “Sweet Caroline,” “America,” and “Cracklin’ Rosie.” From those exhilarating early days in New York to the sold-out spectacles that defined his career, A Beautiful Noise explores the life of a rock icon through the music that made him a national treasure.

Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, choreographed by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett, and written by four-time Academy Award nominee Anthony McCarten, A Beautiful Noise is a thrilling look at an artist’s search for himself and a celebration of the enduring power of his music.

Alongside Hurder, the musical is lead by Will Swenson as Neil Diamond (Then), Mark Jacoby as Neil Diamond (Now), Linda Powell as Doctor, and Jessie Fisher as Jaye Posner.

The rest of the cast includes Michael McCormick, Tom Alan Robbins, Bri Sudia, Neal Benari, Nick Fradiani, Becky Gulsvig, Ninako Donville, Paige Faure, Kalonjee Gallimore, Samantha Gershman, Alex Hairston, Makai Hernandez, Sydney Jones, Jess LeProtto, Tatiana Lofton, Aaron James McKenzie, Mary Page Nance, Robert Pendilla, Preston Perez, Max Sangerman, Mimi Scardulla, and Deandre Sevon.
