ABOUT THE SHOW
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.
King had her first #1 hit as a songwriter in 1960 at age 18 with "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," which she wrote with her first husband, David Goffin. She went on to become one of the most successful songwriters of all time.
King appeared on Broadway in the musical Blood Brothers in the mid-1990s.
Beautiful played a pre-Broadway tryout at SHN’s Curan Theatre in San Francisco in the fall of 2013.
