Grammy® Award Winner for “Best Musical Theater Album” of 2015
The national touring production of Beautiful - The Carole King Musical opened Tuesday at The Fox Theatre. Before she was Carole King, superstar—she was Carole King, teenage songwriter. Her music would become the soundtrack to a generation. 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.
#BeautifulOnTour was dazzling, nostalgic and sentimental. It is truly an emotional musical with fascinating characters and incredible performances. The musical has great tunes and that loving feeling the audience craves. The show discography is absolutely remarkable. I recommend everyone who's contemplating to see it, to not think it twice and buy tickets before it's too late. Without trying to sound cliched, the show is truly beautiful!
