Neil Diamond Spotted Watching Brand-New Broadway Musical About His Life

A Neil Diamond Broadway musical is coming next year

There is a new Broadway musical in the works about Neil Diamond’s life and career. He was seen attending a private run-through of the show and seemed to love it! Neil was humming along to his songs, performed by the Broadway stars. The show does not have a title yet, but it should premiere in New York in August 2021. This is very exciting!

Many popular Broadway shows have come out about icons such as Carole King and Cher. Neil Diamond seems like an obvious choice for the next one! Anthony McCarten wrote the musical. He also wrote the film Bohemian Rhapsody.
