Neil Diamond Musical 'A Beautiful Noise' Sets World Premiere Date

A Beautiful Noise, the new Broadway-bound musical that will tell the life story of singer-songwriter Neil Diamond, will have its world premiere at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre next summer. This is a strictly limited four-week engagement starting Tuesday, June 21, 2022 playing through Sunday, July 17, 2022. 

Diamond said, “I’ve had the joy of coming to Boston on countless occasions, but one of the most special was my 2013 trip to Fenway where I had the honor of being part of a moment of relief, unity, strength, and love. Next summer, when A Beautiful Noise has its first performance at the Emerson Colonial Theatre, and we’re all able to safely be in the same space together, experiencing the thrill of live theater, I imagine those same emotions will wash over me and the entire audience. Relief... Unity... Strength… Love… I can’t wait to share that experience.”

Olivier Award winner and four-time Tony Award nominee Steven Hoggett will choreograph, Academy Award-nominee Anthony McCarten will write the book, Tony Award winner Michael Mayer will direct, with Ken Davenport and Bob Gaudio as producers.

Long loved by Boston, Diamond first played Revere, MA, in 1967 and he has subsequently played Boston and surrounding areas almost 40 times, visiting the city in each decade of his 50+ years of performing. His 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. T

Casting, creative team, and ticket on sale dates for A Beautiful Noise in Boston will be announced at a later.
