CHICAGO -- The Tony Award-winning hit "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" is playing at the Oriental Theatre for an extended 12-week limited engagement Dec. 1, 2015 - Feb. 21, 2016.
"Beautiful-The Carole King Musical" is a smash-hit musical about the early life and career of the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter.
Chicago native, Abby Mueller, stops by Windy City LIVE to talk about the show and perform "Will You Still Love Me." Mueller's sister, Jessie Mueller, won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical in 2014 her portrayal of King in the show's Broadway production.
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, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
