Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which concluded Ogunquit Playhouse's 2022 season, will open their 2023 season in a special encore engagement. The production will play a five-week return engagement from May 11 to June 10, 2023, part of a four-show 2023 season to be fully announced in January.
Casting for the return engagement is to be announced.
Featuring a book by Douglas McGrath, the musical tells the real-life story of Carole King's journey to rock 'n' roll fame. Popular hits featured in the musical include "You’ve Got a Friend," "One Fine Day," "Up on the Roof," "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," and "Natural Woman."
