American Idol winner Nick Fradiani will take over the role of Neil Diamond this month from the departing Will Swenson in Broadway‘s bio-musical A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical, producers Ken Davenport and Bob Gaudio announced today.
Fradiani, who won the 2015 edition of American Idol and last year released his second album Past My Past, will begin his role in A Beautiful Noise on Tuesday, October 31 at the Broadhurst Theatre. As previously reported, Swenson’s final performance after originating the role a year ago will be on Sunday, Oct. 29.
“Neil Diamond’s music was a huge part of my childhood,” said Fradiani, who has been the alternate in the role since the show’s premiere, adding, “I have seen first-hand the love, passion, and excitement the audience has brought to our theater over the past year, and I’m so lucky to continue being a part of this beautiful story.”
The cast also features Mark Jacoby as the older Neil Diamond, Robyn Hurder, and Shirine Babb.
