The Neil Diamond Experience Comes to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater

Broadway, television, and film star Robert Neary brings his one-of-a-kind tribute show to the legendary Neil Diamond to Peekskill.

New York State native and Broadway and television actor Robert Neary is bringing his critically acclaimed show So Good! The Neil Diamond Experience to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater on April 6. This tribute show is unlike any other as Neary skillfully impersonates the master himself and tells the stories behind some of the classic songs as he performs 22 of Diamond’s greatest hits. Backed by New York’s premier band The Mystic, So Good! is guaranteed to be a passionate show that audiences won’t soon forget.

Born and raised on Long Island, Neary grew up listening to and mimicking his two favorite artists in the world – Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond. Neary gained immediate success as an actor, with roles in Fame, General Hospital, Criminal Minds, Sons of Anarchy, Blue Bloods, and many other TV hits. After moving to Nashville to pursue contemporary gospel music, and then to LA to continue his passion for acting, Neary returned to New York in 2017 to work on the Broadway smash A Bronx Tale, The Musical.

For Neary, the show is about more than just impersonating Neil Diamond, but about truly becoming the legend himself. Thanks to his extensive experience as an actor and a deep-rooted enthusiasm for the star’s music, Neary sets himself apart from other tribute acts. The actor adds a unique touch to this production as he weaves the story of Diamond’s life with quotes from interviews and autobiographical books to take audiences on an immersive journey. One glance at the actor’s career or peak into his IMDB page will prove that this is the role he has been preparing for his whole life.

With a rich, baritone voice and trademark black and silver jacket, Neary’s stage presence uncannily resembles that of Neil Diamond’s. “But make no mistake about it at all, if you close your eyes and listen to him sing any of the 22 classic Diamond songs with the magnificent band behind him, you will swear you are listening to the master himself,” writes the staff on the Xenia Daily Gazette.

Catch Neary perfectly hit each note in popular songs like “I’m a Believer,” “Caroline,” “Cherry Cherry,” “Coming to America,” and so many others. The show culminates in a surprise finale that promises to leave the audience breathless. “The Neil Diamond Experience is not just a tribute; it’s a testament to the lifelong influence of two musical legends,” says the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater.

So Good! The Neil Diamond Experience premieres at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill on April 6 at 8 p.m. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
