This inspiring true story of Carole King’s journey from teenage songwriter to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a Tony and Grammy Award–winning musical phenomenon. Before she was hitmaker Carole King, Carole Klein was a spunky, young songwriter from Brooklyn with a unique voice. From the chart-topping hits she wrote for the biggest acts in music to her own life-changing, trailblazing success with her album Tapestry, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical takes audiences back to where it all began. Featuring such unforgettable classics as “You’ve Got a Friend,” “One Fine Day,” “Take Good Care of My Baby,” “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” and “Natural Woman,” the show is filled with the songs you remember and a story you’ll never forget.
