Music legend Carole King and her life story have made it to Broadway.
The musical comes to Madison and then Milwaukee next month. The show is now in Louisville where it got this this review:
The narrative follows Carole’s (Julia Knitel) progression from young scrappy teenage song writer, all the way through her success as a recording artist. The narrative is told mostly through book scenes, with popular music of the era thrown in. One treat the audience gets is an appreciation for Carole King the songwriter. In her early years before performing she and her husband/lyricist Gerry Goffin (Liam Tobin), she helped create massive hits performed by superstars of the time like The Shirelles, The Drifters, Little Eva, and more
Later this evening we feature some songs written by King in our Goodnight blog.
For now, our forgotten Carole King oldie. From an album that hit #1 in 1971.
