Musical about Carole King kicks off at PPAC

By News Staff

A musical about a music legend starts its national tour right here in Providence. 

‘Beautiful – The Carole King Musical’ opens at PPAC next week. It tells the story of King’s rise to stardom, with, of course, plenty of songs that you may recognize.

Abby Mueller, who plays King, says, "You have this love story and this story of these friends that really kinda grabs onto your heart and you’re invested in these people. And then they just happen to be singing a bunch of really awesome songs too."

The tour kicks off Tuesday with shows playing through Sunday.
