MUSIC

Composer Barry Mann and lyricist Cynthia Weil were an unstoppable duo, cranking out hits with enduring appeal.

From a small office at New York City's Aldon Music, Carole King and Gerry Goffin co-wrote big hits that became timeless classics.

Revered songwriter. Iconic performer. Pop music as we know it would be far different without the many lasting contributions of Carole King.

Get ready to experience the music that shaped a generation. You'll hear these songs (and more) on stage at BEAUTIFUL.
