“My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue, an everlasting vision of the ever changing view.”
The Amarillo Little Theatre was thrilled to be the first community theatre in the nation to present the Tony and Grammy Award-winning hit Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. We are proud to be only the 4th theatre to produce this show outside of the Broadway and touring runs. HOW EXCITING IS THAT?!
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. 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 “You’ve Got a Friend”, “One Fine Day”, “So Far Away”, “Take Good Care of My Baby”, “Up on the Roof”, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” and “Natural Woman”.
