The fascinating life of one of pop music’s greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. When Carole’s personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

'Beautiful' is a joyous celebration! Douglas McGrath's smart, well-crafted, and funny book cleverly threads together a memorable catalog of early rock hits.

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

Carole King fans will love it! With Marc Bruni's crisp direction and Josh Prince's precision choreography, the song hits segue seamlessly on Derek McLane's grid set - from drab office to glittery concert stage - with the efficiency of one of librettist Doug McGrath's snappy lines.
