I hope they enjoy it as much as I have.”

The cast also includes Jessie Fisher as Jaye Posner and Robyn Hurder as Marcia Murphey. It hasn’t been announced who will be performing these roles on tour.
The singer-songwriter behind such hits as “Sweet Caroline,” “America,” and “Cracklin’ Rosie” had previously released a statement about the honor of having his life turned into a musical.
Upon news of the Broadway performance’s debut, he wrote, “I’ve had the joy of coming to Boston on countless occasions, but one of the most special was my 2013 trip to Fenway where I had the honor of being part of a moment of relief, unity, strength, and love,” he said. “Next summer, when A Beautiful Noise has its first performance at the Emerson Colonial Theatre, and we’re all able to safely be in the same space together, experiencing the thrill of live theater, I imagine those same emotions will wash over me and the entire audience. Relief… Unity… Strength… Love… I can’t wait to share that experience.”
