Now is the time to run to the Broadhurst: Broadway's A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical has announced a special signing event for October 18.
The current cast will be on hand to sign the Original Broadway Cast Album immediately after the October 18 matinee, providing fans one last chance to get the signature of Tony nominee Will Swenson before he departs the leading role.
Said producer Bob Gaudio, “Signed cast albums are theatre fans' most prized possession and as we prepare to say ‘Happy Trails’ to Will Swenson, this will be the last chance people will have to get their CDs signed by this remarkable cast. I hope to see as many A Beautiful Noise fans there as possible to celebrate the cast and our cast album.”
The signing event is free, and open to anyone with a physical copy of the cast album. Members of the production’s merchandise team will have extra copies of the album available for purchase at the theatre as well.
Signing is on a first-come, first-served basis, with the event strictly limited to 60 minutes. The line in front of the Broadhurst will begin at 3:30 PM. Anyone arriving before then will be asked to leave.
To ensure that as many people as possible can receive autographs, the signing event is limited to the Original Broadway Cast Recording. However, if a person wants another item signed, such as a Playbill or souvenir book, on-site donations of $25 can be made to The Parkinson’s Foundation for one additional signed item.
