Neil Diamond ‘visibly moved’ by Broadway bio musical

Neil Diamond attended a very private run-through of a Broadway-bound musical about his life last week — and was spotted humming along to his songs. The show, as yet untitled, is now on track to hit New York in August 2021 after an out-of-town tryout.

The show may stand out because of its writer — Anthony McCarten, who’s up for a 2020 Oscar for his movie “The Two Popes.”
