In the FOXlight: Backstage With the Cast of Broadway's 'Beautiful: The Carole King Musical'

Michael Tammero checks in with the cast of the hit Broadway musical.

 

If you're a fan of Carole King's music — and who are you kidding, you know you are — you're going to absolutely love "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical."

Featuring the songs that made King a superstar, "Beautiful" tells the story of Carole's early career and rise to fame. Not only does it include hits like "I Feel the Earth Move" and "So Far Away," but the show's talented cast performs songs she penned for other popular artists with songwriting partner Gerry Goffin, such as "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."

And speaking of that talented cast, FOX entertainment correspondent Michael Tammero got the chance to go backstage to meet actress Jessie Mueller, who earned a Tony Award for her portrayal of Carole King in 2013.

"She means so much to so many people," she told Tammero of playing the iconic songstress. "I mean, she's a legend. You don't want to screw that up!"
