  • SYNOPSIS

    Beautiful captures the magic of songwriter/musician Carole King. King, who grew up in Brooklyn as Carol Klein, had her first hit at the age of 18 when “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” topped the charts. After that, King and husband Gerry Goffin created numerous hits and after they divorced, the only woman to receive the prestigious Gershwin Prize for Popular Song (2013), went on to a brilliant solo career.
  • Beautiful charts her numerous ups and downs, which have included four marriages and four children, performances and artistic associations with some of the biggest chart toppers in pop music, including good friend James Taylor, and innumerable awards. King’s life has been marked by personal struggles in relationships, a reluctance to perform early in her career and a focus later in life on politics and environmental issues. Beautiful- The Carole King Musical offers audiences a portrait of a woman who from 1955–99 wrote or co-wrote 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the most successful woman songwriter of the mid to late 20th century.
