ABOUT BEAUTIFUL—The Carole King Musical
Broadway In Chicago and producers Paul Blake and Sony/ATV Music Publishing are thrilled to announce that the Tony Award-winning hit BEAUTIFUL—The Carole King Musical, about the early life and career of the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter, will play Chicago’s Oriental Theatre (24 West Randolph) for an extended 12-week limited engagement December 1, 2015 through February 21, 2016.
BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of Carole 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.
With a book by Tony® and Academy® Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni and choreography by Josh Prince, BEAUTIFUL features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and the title song. BEAUTIFUL opened on Broadway in January 2014 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre where it has broken every box office record.
