Soundtrack of a Generation

By: Taylor Roberts

From teenage songwriter to prolific performer, Carole King’s music became the soundtrack of a generation and you can experience her influence live onstage when Beautiful – The Carole King Musical plays The Lincoln Center February 27–29.

“Her music shaped an entire generation of background soundtracks to people's lives,” says Kennedy Caughell, who plays Carole King in the national Broadway touring production of Beautiful. “And that means it continues to be relevant and continues to shape the music that comes out today.”

Based on the inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom, Beautiful follows King from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin to finding her own voice and becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

This Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical features an array of beloved songs including “I Feel the Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “A Natural Woman” and the title song “Beautiful.”
“Whether it's a song that they love or a song that they didn’t realize was Carole King’s, I love hearing the audience’s reaction when a song starts,” says Caughell.

Feel inspired by the life and music of Carole King when you experience Beautiful – The Carole King Musical Feb. 27–29 at The Lincoln Center. Seats from $20 at
