A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical, which opened at the Broadhurst Theatre December 4, 2022, celebrated one year on Broadway this week. Instead of receiving a gift though, they gave one. In keeping with the traditional gift of paper for the first anniversary, the production gave scratch-off lottery tickets to every audience member.
Nick Fradiani, who stars as Neil Diamond - Then in the biomusical, joked with the audience that any lucky winners would be obligated to take him on vacation. See photos of Fradiani with some of the audience members in the gallery below.
A Beautiful Noise takes a look at the life of the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, then and now, accompanied by hits from his decades-long career in popular music. All songs are written or co-written by Neil Diamond. Tony winner Michael Mayer directs.
In addition to Fradiani, the cast also includes Tony nominee Mark Jacoby as Neil Diamond–Now, Robyn Hurder as Marcia Murphey, and Shirine Babb as Doctor, along with Jessie Fisher, Michael McCormick, Tom Alan Robbins, and Bri Sudia.
