I’m excited to offer a giveaway to something for the grown ups this week.  With living so close to DC we should take better advantage of getting whisked away to a romantic restaurant, making memories visiting monuments or even stepping away to see a show in our Nations Capital that is rich with culture. It’s a rare occasion that parents get the chance to hit the town to see a show; hopefully this ticket giveaway offers a great opportunity to make a date night or even ladies night out happen.


Beautiful: The Carole King Musical features an array of favorite songs written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. You will walk through her story that made her a legend. Long before King was at the top of the charts as the music legend Carole King, she was Carol Klein, a passionate girl from Brooklyn. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and by the time she reached her twenties, found the husband of her dreams and established a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. However, it wasn’t until personal life began to fall apart 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.

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 a 2015 Grammy® Award.


The cast features Sarah Bockel (Carole King), Dylan S. Wallach (Gerry Goffin), Alison Whitehurst (Cynthia Weil), Jacob Heimer (Barry Mann), James Clow (Don Kirshner) and Suzanne Grodner (Genie Klein).
