Diamonds are forever! Music to rock and touch your soul.
Copperstate Productions is proud to announce the return of the musical Beautiful Noise – The Music of Neil Diamond on the Kern Entertainment outdoor stage as a part of our continuing socially distanced theater productions which have included hit productions of 4 on the Floor, Broadway Jukebox, Holly Jolly Christmas and the smash hit Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story.
Rising from humble roots in working-class Brooklyn to global success, Neil Diamond became one of the best-selling recording artists of the 20th century as well as a dynamic, internationally known touring act and skilled songwriter whose compositions produced numerous hits for himself and others. In a career that began in the early 1960s as a staff songwriter at New York's legendary songwriting institution the Brill Building, he soon transitioned into performing and recording his own songs, finding success among the emerging pop singer/songwriter market with early highlights like "Solitary Man" and "Kentucky Woman." Melodic chart-toppers like "Cracklin' Rosie" and "Song Sung Blue" kept him on top and opened the door for ambitious project material like the Grammy Award-winning Jonathan Livingston Seagull soundtrack and 1976's conceptual Beautiful Noise album. Diamond continued to tour, release music, and accumulate impressive honors including his induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Kennedy Center Honors, and a Lifetime Achievement Grammy. During a 2018 world tour celebrating his five decades in music, it was revealed that Diamond had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, ending his live career. Nevertheless, he remained active in the studio, returning with 2020's Classic Diamonds.
The Copperstate production of Beautiful Noise – The Music of Neil Diamond celebrates the music of this classic American singer/songwriter with a stage production filled with his greatest hits including, “I’m a Believer”, “Sweet Caroline”, “Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show”, “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” and many more.
Performed by an all-star cast that includes:
Elizabeth Bridgewater (Disenchanted)
Lacey Dixon (Broadway Jukebox)
Brianne Gobeski (Into the Woods)
Alex Gonzalez (Buddy, South Pacific and more)
Adam Guinn (Mamma Mia)
and Brian Hoffman (4 on the Floor)
