The Lutcher Theater for the Performing Arts is getting ready to close its 2021-2022 season with a Tony & Grammy Award-winning Broadway hit musical, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, which is about the early life and career of Carole King, the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter. Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will be at the Lutcher Theater for ONE NIGHT ONLY on May 31, 2022, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available at lutcher.org. Only 125 tickets remain!
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a 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.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical 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. The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical (Ghostlight Records) won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and is available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl.
“Following this unprecedented intermission from live theater, we are thrilled that Beautiful will be back on the road to bring joy and music once again to audiences across North America,” exclaims producer Paul Blake. “We are humbled that over five million audience members worldwide have been entertained by our celebration of Carole’s story and her timeless music.”
“Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is one of my all-time favorite shows, celebrating one of my all-time favorite artists, and I can’t wait to share this incredible show with our Lutcher family!” says Lynae Sanford, Lutcher’s Managing Director
