Celebrate a Legend with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical! Before she was Carole King, she was Carole Klein, a spunky young song-writer from Brooklyn with a unique voice that changed music. Beautiful is a Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical phenomenon filled with the songs you remember and a story you'll never forget. For six years, Beautiful, The Carole King Musical, thrilled Broadway audiences with the inspiring true story of one woman’s remarkable journey from teenage
songwriter to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With a stirring book by the late Oscar and Tony-nominated Douglas McGrath and the music and lyrics of icons Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Beautiful is the inspiring tale about a girl who became King.

BEAUTIFUL IS PRODUCED THROUGH SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT WITH MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL, NY, NY, WWW.MTISHOWS,COM
