The Great Bright Way

Exiting the stage during a sold-out performance of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is nothing new for Jarrod Spector and Anika Larsen. But this photo, of an otherwise common stage direction, is elevated to something extraordinary. In Beautiful, Anika and Jarrod play Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil – songwriters, collaborators, lovers who befriend a young Carole King at the beginning of a legendary career. In this Photo of the Week, a stage light shines brightly and beautifully behind the two stars. To paraphrase Mann/Weil themselves, the neon lights ARE bright on Broadway! Come see Beautiful at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre as soon as you can!
