Beautiful the Musical
Carole King’s uplifting and incredible true story comes to life in this award-winning performance that features her award-winning music. Hit tunes like “I Feel the Earth Move,” “One Fine Day” and “Beautiful” take audiences on Carole’s journey from her humble beginnings to her place as an international music legend.
In 1958, Carole King left home to pursue her dream of breaking into the record industry. She heads to New York where she meets music publisher Donnie Kirshner. He likes her song, buys it and says he hopes she will write more. A little later she meets Gerry Goffin at Queens College. They team up as songwriters and soon fall in love. They marry, start a family and continue to write Billboard hits.
Carole and Gerry meet wildly successful songwriting team Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. A competition follows the two couples. They produce hit after hit after hit including “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” “On Broadway,” “The Loco-Motion” and “Up on the Roof.”
Just as life appears perfect, Gerry cheats on Carole. Although they attempt to salvage their marriage, they cannot. Full of sadness and disappointment, she leaves New York for Los Angeles in the hopes of starting over. While in L.A., Carole finds an opportunity to perform as a solo artist. Uncertain, she does so anyway in a performance that will transform her from behind-the-scenes songwriter to world famous pop music star.
