She was born Carol Klein, a Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah, and she's coming to Grand Rapids in February. Not as Carol Klein, but as the hit-song writing/singer we know as Carol King!

Okay, not THE Carol King, but the very best next thing, the Tony & Grammy Award-winning Broadway hit "Beautiful—The Carole King Musical." The musical will be in Grand Rapids February 13th through the 18th, 2018, at DeVos Performance Hall as Broadway Grand Rapids continues it's fabulous season with another "knock out" show.

Beautiful tells the 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.
