All I could think was if you haven't heard a particular music's story told like Beautiful The Carole King Musical, I had to express somehow what you've been missing. I had to beg you to go see this show while taking your mother, sister, daughter, aunt or anyone who appreciates music.
Having listened to my mother growing up, singing songs by Carole King I couldn't wait to ask her to see this show with me. As we sat in our seats and Carole's story came through on the stage, I couldn't wait to tell every Generation X, or Millennial, that you have to see music told like this. You have to get out of your comfort zone, and experience this.
Often times we listen to music and have no idea who wrote the song. We just know that it makes us feel all the feelings. Beautiful takes you into the depths of Carole's heart and shows you her passion for writing as well as the story behind so many of her lyrics.
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.
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of 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.
Julia Knitel as Carole King, is absolutely stunning in this role. Her voice is magical, and I believe she captures Carole King perfectly. The rest of the cast doesn't disappoint, Liam Tobin as Gerry Goffin almost steals the show with his own talent, and Erika Olson as Cynthia Weil, opened me up to more music than what I thought I came for. I adored this show, and you will too!
