The fascinating life of one of pop music’s greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. When Carole’s personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Late arriving audience members may be held out until the first appropriate seating opportunity. This applies to the opening act and any ensuing act following an intermission. Late seating holds are in place for the convenience of the performers and audience members who are seated at show time. The lengths of seating holds vary by production and are set in consultation with production artistic staff.
