About Beautiful: The Carole King Musical

Beautiful is a musical that tells the story of chart-topping music icon Carole King. It contains her greatest hits, written by herself, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil, who are also featured characters in the show. The book is by Academy Award nominee Douglas McGrath (Bullets Over Broadway). In August 2013, Tony nominee Jessie Mueller (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) was tapped to star in the San Francisco tryout and Broadway premiere alongside Jarrod Spector (Jersey Boys), Jake Epstein (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), and Anika Larsen (Xanadu).
