“AMERICA’S GOT TALENT”
STAR ABBY MUELLER AND CAST
OF TONY® AND GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING SMASH HIT
TO PERFORM NEW MEDLEY ON SUMMER’S HIGHEST-RATED SHOW
New York, NY (August 28, 2018) – The Tony®, Olivier®, and Grammy® Award-winning smash hit Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will perform live on tomorrow night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent.” The cast of Beautiful lead by Broadway star Abby Mueller will perform a new medley featuring some of Ms. King’s most iconic songs on the highly rated NBC program. “America’s Got Talent” airs locally at 8 PM ET.
Ms. Mueller recently returned to the production as Carole King. Ms. Mueller originated the role in the national tour of Beautiful and subsequently played the role on Broadway. Her portrayal of Carole was hailed by critics as a touching and powerful portrait of the music legend.
With a book by Tony and Academy Award® nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince, Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil.
For five years, Beautiful, the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical, has thrilled Broadway with the inspiring true story of one woman’s remarkable journey from teenage songwriter to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
From the string of pop classics Ms. King wrote for the biggest acts in music to her own life-changing, chart-busting success with Tapestry, Beautiful takes you back to where it all began – and takes you on the ride of a lifetime.
Featuring over two dozen pop classics, including “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,” this crowd pleasing international phenomenon is filled with the songs you remember – and a story you’ll never forget.
The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical (Ghostlight Records), the 2015 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Theater Album, is available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl.
The creative team of Beautiful also includes Derek McLane (Set Design), Alejo Vietti (Costume Design), Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design), Brian Ronan (Sound Design), Charles G. LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Sidwell (Orchestrations and Music Arrangements), Jason Howland (Music Supervision), and John Miller (Music Coordination).
In addition to New York, the North American Tour of Beautiful will celebrate its third anniversary this September. Last month, the Australian production of Beautiful, which is currently playing in Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre, won five Helpmann Awards®, the highest honor in Australian theater, including the award for Best Musical.
