Neil Diamond

A Beautiful Noise

A brand new musical all about Neil Diamond is destined for Broadway. A Beautiful Noise will receive its world premiere in Boston in summer 2022 ahead of a Broadway transfer. 

Diamond's iconic song “Sweet Caroline” has become an anthem to Red Sox fans where at every home game an eighth-inning singalong takes place at Fenway Park. The song’s connection to Boston was seared into the hearts of millions when, in the immediate aftermath of the 2013 Marathon Bombing, teams around the Major Leagues played the song to show solidarity with the city while at Fenway, Diamond himself took to the field to sing an emotional rendition of 1969 classic.

With his first break into songwriting in the 1960’s and his meteoric rise in the 1970’s, 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 to tell it: a musical set to his era- and genre-defining smash hits that entranced the world.
