When You’re Down and Troubled and Need Some Lovin’ Care

This Tony, Olivier, and Grammy award-winning musical follows the whirlwind career of the legendary Carole King. From her early years writing songs as a Brooklyn teenager to penning hit after hit for legendary groups such as The Drifters (“Up on the Roof”), The Shirelles (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and icons like James Taylor (“You’ve Got a Friend”) and Aretha Franklin (“You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman”), King became a singer/songwriter powerhouse. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical brings Carole King’s music to the stage and showcases her spectacular second-act solo career with the moving biography of her life and relationships.
