Neil Diamond joined Tony nominee Will Swenson and the cast of A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical at the June 18 Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals game at Fenway Park for a performance of Diamond's 1969 hit “Sweet Caroline.” Watch the joyful performance above.
“Sweet Caroline” has become an anthem to Red Sox fans. At every home game, an eighth-inning singalong takes place at Fenway Park.
Swenson plays Neil Diamond—Then in the new musical, which begins a six-week world-premiere engagement June 21 at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre. The company is also led by Tony nominee Mark Jacoby as Neil Diamond–Now, Tony nominee Robyn Hurder as Marcia, and Linda Powell as Doctor.
A Beautiful Noise will subsequently arrive on Broadway this fall at the Broadhurst Theatre. Previews begin November 2 prior to an official opening December 4. Casting for the Broadway run will be announced at a later date.
