Lexus Broadway in Austin presented by Texas Performing Arts is hosting the national tour of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical at Bass Concert Hall on March 21-26, 2017.
Do you know how many songs Carole King has written? It’s more than you can imagine, more than enough to fill 3 musicals, I’m sure. And yet, when I hear a song was written by her, I’m still surprised. I shouldn’t be – her music is legendary.
Ever since seeing the performances of the cast of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical on the Tonys a few years ago, I have been wanting to see it. Which is why I am thrilled to see it when it comes to the Bass Concert Hall for seven performances, March 21-27, 2017.
From the Press Release……
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 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 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.
