As the 2015-16 FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando series comes to a close, we have one last production to enjoy inside the Dr. Phillips Center. And this one promises to be marvelous.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will hit the stage inside the Walt Disney Theater for eight shows beginning Tuesday, May 3 through Sunday, May 8, 2016.
The show follows the story of Carole King starting out as a teenage songwriter, before she became a superstar, before her music became the soundtrack to a generation.
King’s struggles to break into the record business, find her way and eventually hold it all together amidst the pressures of fame come to life on stage, as do her timeless hits, which are weaved through the show’s soundtrack.
Beautiful gives a glimpse behind the stardom and King’s experience as part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, and becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical
May 3-8, 2016
Dr. Phillips Center, Walt Disney Theater
