Will a Neil Diamond bio-musical land on Broadway?

Neil Diamond

A new bio-musical telling the life story of legendary singer-songwriter Neil Diamond is currently in development for the Great White Way. Featuring a book by three-time Oscar nominee Anthony McCarten (who also wrote the screenplay for the "Bohemian Rhapsody" biopic), the musical will be directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer and will explore how a poor, Jewish kid from Brooklyn became one of the most universally adored showmen of all time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's back catelogue includes such beloved hits as "Sweet Caroline," "Cracklin' Rosie," "Song Sung Blue," "If You Know What I Mean," and many more. Casting and a timeline for the production is yet to be announced.
