Description

from Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
Before she was Carole King, superstar—she was Carol Klein, teenage songwriter. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom from being part of a chart-topping songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music. She wrote the soundtrack to a generation.



This show is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (1 intermission). Appropriate for all ages.

I had no idea Carole King was behind so much music. And then the cast of this great show did an outstanding job of showcasing the talent that came from Carole and her colleagues. You felt like you were right there watching Carole King's life. Wonderful show!

Incredible portrayal of the life of Carole King! I had no idea of her story and all the music she was behind. We went to the TKTS Booth at Lincoln Center and got 50% off fantastic seats. 3rd row orchestra. Felt like we were part of the show. We both came away saying we would see it again.
