ABOUT THE SHOW: BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL

Before she was hit-maker Carole King — she was Carole Klein, a spunky, young songwriter from Brooklyn with a unique voice. From the chart-topping hits she wrote for the biggest acts in music to her own life-changing, trailblazing success with Tapestry, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical takes you back to where it all began — and takes you on the ride of a lifetime. Featuring such unforgettable classics as “You’ve Got a Friend”, “One Fine Day”, “So Far Away”, “Take Good Care of My Baby”, “Up on the Roof”, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, and “Natural Woman”, this Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning musical phenomenon is filled with the songs you remember — and a story you’ll never forget. Words and Music by Gerry Goffin, Carole King, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil; Book by Douglas McGrath; Music by Arrangement with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. RATED: PG-13 some adult themes and language.
