#TBT: Playbill: Beautiful - The Carole King Musical: January 2014

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical recently celebrated its 5th anniversary, and as it turns out, we saw the show 5 years ago this past week. Since then, it's been great to see the original cast in new things - Jessie Mueller in Carousel, Jarrod Spector in The Cher Show, etc. And while it will never be a favorite show of mine (review HERE), five years for a show that wasn't Best Musical is still quite an accomplishment. Of course, there's no doubting the sheer excellence of King's music. That alone makes the show worth celebrating.

Here's a look back inside the first month's Playbill:

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical
Stephen Sondheim Theatre
60 previews, 2,108 performances (as of 1/31/19)
January 2014 cast: Jessie Mueller, Jeb Brown, Jake Epstein, Anika Larsen, Liz Larsen, Jarrod Spector

2 Legends, 2 shows on Broadway

The Original Broadway Company



January 2014 was a great time on Broadway for music fans! You had After Midnight, A Night With Janis Joplin, Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia!, Motown and Rock of Ages to choose from. Disney fans had their pick of Aladdin, Newsies and The Lion King. Movie buffs had Kinky Boots, Rocky and The Bridges of Madison County to enjoy. Like I said, a great time.
