Beautiful ― The Carole King Musical

The inspiring true story of the Tony and Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Carole King is told in Beautiful – The Carole King Musical. It captures King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin (to whom she was married for nine years), 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, King made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. The musical will have audiences singing along to some of her greatest hits like “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Up on the Roof” and “I Feel the Earth Move.” The show won two Tony Awards in 2014.

When: March 20 to 22
