Neil Diamond Broadway Musical in the Works
Neil Diamond will be the subject of a new Broadway musical that is currently in the works.
Per Rolling Stone, the untitled production will center around Diamond’s life and feature some of his catalog’s biggest hits. The show will be written by Anthony McCarten, who also wrote the screenplay for Bohemian Rhapsody. Tony-winner Michael Mayer has been tapped to direct the production.
In a statement on the musical, Diamond said, “I’ve always loved Broadway. The inspiration for many of my early songs came from shows like West Side Story, My Fair Lady and Fiddler on the Roof, so it seems only fitting to bring my songs to The Great White Way. I’m honored and excited to be working with this great team.”
As of now, a tentative open date has yet to be announced.
