Beautiful the Musical
Inspiring and uplifting, this award-winning musical tells the incredible story of legendary singer and songwriter Carole King. Through familiar and famous songs like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “One Fine Day,” and “Beautiful,” audiences get to know the life and lyrics of a woman whose music defined a generation.
Before she became Carole King, she was unknown Brooklyn girl Carol Klein. With big dreams and a desire to break into the record industry, she set out for New York and meets music publisher Donnie Kirshner who buys her song and tells her that he hopes she writes more. Soon after she meets Gerry Goffin at Queens College. They team up as songwriting partners and soon become romantically involved. They fall in love, marry and have a child.
Along the way, they meet songwriting team Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. A friendly competition begins between the two couples to write the most and biggest hits. Each team turns out hit after hit like “On Broadway,” “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’,” and “The Loco-Motion.”
Life seems perfect, but the illusion soon shatters. Gerry cheats on Carole. Even though they attempt to save their marriage, it falls apart. Carole leaves New York to start over in Los Angeles. There, she discovers her voice. The adversity that threatened her personal life, career and music transform her into an international pop star and music legend.
