Super Diamond on January 26
Billing itself as “The Alternative Neil Diamond Experience,” Super Diamond has spent the last two decades channeling its muse on stage. Fronted by Randy Cordero—who earned his alias “Surreal Neil” with his uncanny recreation of Diamond’s anthemic notes—the band reacquaints listeners to such hits as “Sweet Caroline,” “I’m a Believer,” and “Forever in Blue Jeans,” all while lending its own twist to the music. As Cordero told SF Weekly, “We’re not doing a straight-on tribute,” adding, “we make Neil’s songs a lot more heavy, add a lot of alternative rock twists to it, or lot of heavy rock twists—a little Black Sabbath or AC/DC.”

NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts and musical theater.
