Since opening on Broadway in 2014, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical has charmed audiences and critics alike, winning the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

She is joined by Evan Todd (Heathers the musical) as Gerry Goffin, Kara Lindsay (Wicked, Newsies) as Cynthia Weil, and Ben Jacoby (The Phantom of the Opera) as Barry Mann.

Featuring a book by Douglas McGrath (Checkers, Bullets over Broadway) and music and lyrics from the Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Beautiful is directed by Marc Bruni (Pipe Dream, Nerds). The creative team also includes Outer Critics Circle nominated choreographer Josh Prince (Shrek, The Musical) and scenic designer Derek McLane (33 Variations).

Following her life and career from first hit to the chart-topping solo album Tapestry in 1971, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre is a joyous celebration of one of music’s biggest legends.
