Producers Ken Davenport and Bob Gaudio announced today (July 1) that a new biographical musical telling the life story of Neil Diamond is headed for Broadway.
The untitled musical will be directed by Michael Mayer, and the score will consist of Diamond's greatest hits and a book by Anthony McCarten (Bohemian Rhapsody, Darkest Hour, The Theory of Everything).
Diamond shared in a statement: "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."
