By Music Theatre International on February 01, 2023

Ready to feel the Earth move? Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is now available for a limited licensing window. Licensed performances may occur beginning June 1, 2023 through August 31, 2026.

For six years, Beautiful, the Tony® and Grammy Award®-winning Carole King musical, thrilled Broadway audiences with the inspiring true story of one woman’s remarkable journey from teenage songwriter to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With a stirring book by the late Oscar and Tony-nominated Douglas McGrath and the music and lyrics of icons Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Beautiful is the inspiring tale about a girl who became King.

Before she was Carole King, she was Carole Klein, a spunky young song-writer from Brooklyn with a unique voice that changed music. Beautiful is a Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical phenomenon filled with the songs you remember and a story you'll never forget.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “a joyous celebration” and a “must-see” by NBC-New York, Beautiful was a hit with critics and audiences alike. The Huffington Post said the show “instantly joins the ranks of the irresistible,” while The Wall Street Journal called the musical, “out of control amazing.”

Doug McGrath once remarked that “to see Beautiful is to feel beautiful. Because that’s the effect the show has. People feel so good after seeing our show.”

Beautiful is available for licensing for performances taking place on June 1, 2023 through August 31, 2026. Only e-perusals are available at this time. All other materials will be available April 1, 2023. Get your license applications in today!
