Oh, What a Beautiful Morning
Earlier today, producers announced that the Broadway production of Beautiful: the Carole King Musical, has recouped its $13 million investment. It is the first new musical of the 2013-2014 season to accomplish this feat -- a goal which it accomplished in roughly 10 months at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on 44th Street. The show stars 2014 Tony-winning actress Jessie Mueller, who recently extended her contract through March 2015, as Carole King. The musical will begin a West End run in London in February and a US tour will launch next September.
