Hello Again – The Story of Neil Diamond, is coming to The Capitol in Horsham this month. With a cast that can proudly boast past credits to include Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Take That, Spice Girls, Bay City Rollers, Freddie Starr, Culture Club, The Drifters and many more, it’s no surprise that this show has accelerated itself to becoming the talk of theatre land. It’s also no surprise, when you consider the subject matter…
One Neil Leslie Diamond, born a star on 24 January 1941, in his early years an in-house songwriter at the now legendary Brill Building, scoring his first solo hit in 1966. 50 years and over 125 Million records sold, his ongoing story carved deep in the annals of music history is one that must be told.
Enter Brooklyn Creed – dubbed The Voice of Diamond & The Salvation Band. Brooklyn carries huge expectation on his shoulders. Born with an uncannily similar timbre to his idol and an exceptional guitar player, Brooklyn soon sends any competition running home to their mothers.
The Salvation Band, great friends and one of the hottest live bands in the UK, hand pick specific live and studio versions of Diamond’s performances under the critical gaze of MD/Keyboard player Dave Jenkins to ensure absolute authenticity. Show creators/ producers, Darren Bazzoni and Juanita Diaz were absolutely insistent in keeping quality and consistency paramount throughout, employing one of the best Production teams in the business, Network Productions. Sound, lights & video are in safe hands with the crew responsible for numerous Smash Hit Productions.
From The Bang Years to the present day, you’ll soon find yourself singing along to all the hits, including Sweet Caroline, Cracklin’ Rosie, Forever in Blue Jeans, Song Sung Blue, Hello Again, Love on the Rocks, America and many more.
