NEIL Diamond fans will be flocking to Weymouth Pavilion next month.

Brooklyn Creed, a singer/songwriter from Essex, will appear in Hello Again - The Story of Neil Diamond on Friday, January 11.

Theatre Show producers Darren Bazzoni and Juanita Diaz discovered Brooklyn singing in a Harlow church following a chance tip-off.

“To be honest,” recalls Juanita, “We weren’t holding our breath, how many times have you heard the phrase, you should hear this

guy sing?”

As they walked the short trip from the car to the church, they were treated to an a cappella version of Neil Diamond’s beautiful hit Play Me projecting from the church.

“I nearly dropped to my knees,” recalls Darren, I thought that it WAS actually Neil Diamond.”

As it transpires, Brooklyn was actually an established singer/ songwriter from Harlow, Essex, who had spent his life on the stage playing venues across London, the UK and had even toured Europe and the US, the planets had aligned and ‘Neil’ was immediately signed by theatre production specialists Cookie Jar.

Expect evocative imagery, video and narration to enhance the magic at this show. 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.
