A First Look at Jessie Mueller and Her Beautiful Costars in the Roles They Will Soon Play on Broadway
The cast members of ''Beautiful'' inhabit their musical icons in the out-of-town production in San Francisco.
Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, a new musical chronicling the life and career of four-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Carole King, is offering a sneak peek at what audiences can expect to see when it begins its Broadway run at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on November 21.
Tony nominee Jessie Mueller (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) stars as King (or Klein as she was called in her younger years) alongside Jake Epstein (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark) as her husband and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin and Anika Larsen (Unbroken Circle) and Jarrod Spector (Jersey Boys) as their friends and fellow songwriters Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann.
The musical features a book by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Douglas McGrath (Bullets Over Broadway), direction by Marc Bruni (The Explorers Club), and songs written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, as well as numbers by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
Beautiful is currently performing at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco through October 20. Take a look at a few photos of the cast members in the West Coast production as they prepare for their Broadway arrival next month.
