BEAUTIFUL – The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit 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. Featuring a stunning collection of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and the title song, BEAUTIFUL took home two 2014 Tony® Awards and the 2015 Grammy® for Best Musical Theater Album. 




The Wall Street Journal

BEAUTIFUL IS A JOYOUS CELEBRATION! Douglas McGrath’s smart, well-crafted, and funny book cleverly threads together a memorable catalog of early rock hits.

Entertainment Weekly

‘BEAUTIFUL’ is a marvel! It brings you back to a time when music brought people together. At every turn, the director Marc Bruni and choreographer Josh Prince make the right calls to fill the show with emotion and sincerity.  Little details come together brilliantly on stage. Harmonies transcend.
