About the Show “Beautiful…the Carole King Musical”
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. King wrote her first #1 hit-”Will you Still Love Me Tomorrow?” at age 17 with Goffin. While the pair wrote dozens of chart hits together, it was King’s solo album “Tapestry” that took her to the pinnacle in 1971. To date, more than 400 of her songs have been recorded by 1,000 artists. Featuring a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and the title song, Beautiful has a book by Tony Award nominee and Academy Award-nominated writer Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, choreography by Josh Prince and took home two 2014 Tony Awards and the 2015 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.
ABOUT THE DOMES: Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory (Mitchell Park Domes or The Domes) is a conservatory located at Mitchell Park in Milwaukee. It is owned and operated by the Milwaukee County Park System, and replaced the original Milwaukee Conservatory which stood from 1898 to 1955. The three domes display a large variety of plant life and each maintains a distinct climate and setting for the exposition of its contents. Each show has a specific theme, generally categorized as historical, cultural or fantasy, and chosen at least a year in advance. Plants are selected specifically for a particular floral exhibit and are grown at the Horticulture Division's Greenhouse Center. Once in place, a show lasts from six to fourteen weeks. Since the Show Dome opened in December 1964, Mitchell Park Conservatory has been one of Milwaukee's premier attractions. Visitors have seen over 150 different floral displays, each unique and inspiring.
The Floral Show Dome provides serene settings to be captured by artists and photographers, duplicated by visitors in their own gardens, and used by students learning about flowering plants. Simply put, the Floral Show Dome offers beauty and inspiration for all. It takes many talents to make these themes realities. A landscape architect, horticulturists, arborists, artists, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and welders work together to create each show. The Conservatory was closed during the summer of 2008 to facilitate the replacement of 800 cracked glass panels. The lobby was remodeled and a $500,000 donation allowed for a new external and internal lighting system. The Conservatory re-opened to large crowds in October 2008.
