The Tony Award-winning Beautiful: The Carole King Musical returns to Chicago December 5 through January 28 at the Cadillac Palace Theatre. The show tells the inspiring true story about King's rise to stardom, beginning in 1959 as a 16-year-old singer/songwriter. It goes further to focus on the period in which she wrote songs with her husband Gerry Goffin and highlights their close relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. Beautiful features a collection of familiar songs, including "It's Too Late," "You've Got A Friend," "So Far Away," "I Feel The Earth Move," ("You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and "Beautiful"––all which helped King become an iconic personality who distinguished herself as one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.
