Ghostlight Records has announced the release of the original cast recording of Broadway's Beautiful — The Carole King Musical. The album will be recorded on February 17 and will be available for purchase digitally and in stores this spring.
Like the new musical, with a book by Douglas McGrath, the cast recording of Beautiful features songs written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, and Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, including "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "One Fine Day," "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," and more. The album is produced by Jason Howland and Steve Sidwell, with Kurt Deutsch serving as executive producer.
Beautiful stars Tony Award nominee Jessie Mueller as the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter. The story explores King's early life and career, from her Brooklyn upbringing (when she was still called Carol Klein) to her great success in the music industry with fellow writers and friends Weil and Mann and husband Goffin. Marc Bruni directs the production at Broadway's Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
In addition to Mueller, the cast includes Jake Epstein, Anika Larsen, Jarrod Spector, Jeb Brown, and Liz Larsen, as well as Ashley Blanchet, E. Clayton Cornelious, Joshua Davis, Alysha Deslorieux, Kevin Duda, James Harkness, Carly Hughes, Sara King, Rebecca LaChance, Douglas Lyons, Chris Peluso, Gabrielle Reid, Rashidra Scott, Sara Sheperd, Yasmeen Sulieman, Daniel Torres, Melvin Tunstall, and Alan Wiggins.
