Beautiful — The Carole King Musical tells the real-life story of New York’s own Carole King, and her musical influence on an entire generation. After breaking into the music industry in her teens, King found security in writing for one of the biggest rock-and-roll acts in the country. This show follows Carole’s rise to stardom, her songwriting career with husband Gerry Goffin and later Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, and her triumph as one of the most successful solo recording artists in American music. 

Whether you’re an avid King fan or just becoming acquainted with her music, you’ll recognize hit songs like “One Fine Day,” “I Feel The Earth Move,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” and the title track “Beautiful.”

Prior to its current five-year tour run in the U.S. Beautiful — The Carole King Musical spent six years as a smash hit on Broadway in New York City from 2012 to 2019. The original Broadway production also won Tony Awards, Drama Desk awards, and a Grammy award.

In 2015, Sony Pictures announced that a film adaption of Beautiful — The Carole King Musical was in the works with Tom Hanks’ Playtone production company.
