The Tony® Award-winning hit BEAUTIFUL—The Carole King Musical, about the early life and career of the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter, has consistently been one of Broadway’s top grossing shows and sells out nightly, attracting such fans as Taylor Swift, Hillary Clinton, Kathie Lee Gifford & Hoda Kotb, Rosie O’Donnell, Tom Hanks, Simon Cowell and many more.
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, 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, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
