Beautiful: The Carole King Musical




This biographical musical tells Carole King’s story and features songs from her legendary music career.


Story:

Carole King (then named Carol Klein) starts her music career as a 16-year old songwriter selling originals in Manhattan, but when she meets her future husband and music partner, Gerry Goffin, her career begins to blossom. Through relationships, both inside and outside the studio, Carole finds her unique musical voice and finally records the solo album that will make her a star.
