Beautiful the Carol King Musical

Beautiful – The Carole King Musicalabout the early life and career of the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter, opened on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on January 12, 2014, and is the season’s newest hit.  Starring  Tony® Award-nominee Jessie Mueller as ‘Carole King,’ Beautiful features a book by playwright and Academy®Award-nominated filmmaker Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni and choreography by Josh Prince
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. 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 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.

Ticket prices for the Broadway Premiere of Beautiful range from $75 – $152. Beautiful plays the following schedule: Tuesdays – Thursdays at 7:00 PM, Wednesdays at 2:00 PM, Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM & 8:00 PM, and Sundays at 3:00 PM. For more information, visitwww.beautifulonbroadway.com.
