That Brooklyn Kid Who Made it Big and Took us all Along for the Ride

1960s America was hungry for change and so was he. He landed a gig selling songs for fifty bucks a week in the legendary Tin Pan Alley’s Brill Building, just 5 blocks from where you’re standing right now. At night he honed his voice on stage at the Village’s Bitter End, but knew he was destined for something greater.

This was New York, after all. City of dreams. Full of life and opportunity where anyone could write their story. And so he did, in song after song.

10 Top 10 Hits. 140 million albums sold. His 1972 concert and live album Hot August Night sung in front of 5,000 screaming fans catapulted him to fame as the ultimate entertainer. He sang his way to a Grammy Award, into the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, then topped it off with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy and the Kennedy Center Honors.

An uplifting story about an American musical icon. The ensemble really shines in the show, embodying the “noise” and brings color and life. It exposes students to Diamond’s musical repertoire and his impact on the music industry.

My group had so much fun singing along and enjoying the music. I think that younger students may have trouble connecting to the life story of Neil Diamond but older students will appreciate the life lessons more.
