Beautiful The Musical Schenectady Tickets
Beautiful the Musical
The inspiring true story of Carole King comes to life in this award-winning musical that tells of her journey from unknown Brooklyn girl to music legend. Her music defined a generation. Familiar hit songs like “I Feel the Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” and “Beautiful” take audiences on the journey from Carole’s humble beginnings to the adversity that threatened her personal life, music and career, to her eventual place as an international pop star.
In 1958, Carole King left home to break into the New York record industry. With dreams and determination, she approached music publisher Donnie Kirshner. He likes her work, buys her song and says he hopes she will keep writing. She attends Queens College where she meets Gerry Goffin. They become a songwriting team, fall in love, marry and have a child.
They meet the successful songwriting team of Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. The two songwriting teams begin a competition to see who can write the biggest and most successful hits. From this friendly rivalry come timeless songs like “On Broadway,” “The Loco-Motion” and “Up on the Roof.”
Life appears perfect for Carole until Gerry cheats on her. They try to save their marriage, but it does not work out. She leaves New York and heads to Los Angeles to start over. In L.A., Carole discovers a talent that will transform her from a lyricist to an international music star.
NBC New York calls it “a must-see!” Fans and critics agree. The Broadway box office smash hit won two Tony Awards and two of Britain’s highly sought after Olivier Awards. The show Entertainment Weekly proclaimed “a joyous celebration” also won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
