Philadelphia is going to sound even more euphonic this month with the arrival of the Broadway production Beautiful - The Carole King Musical. Chronicling the life of the legendary songwriter Carole King—from her beginnings as a self-doubting musical prodigy to her role in shaping modern pop music by writing nearly 120 chart-topping hits such as “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”—the musical peers into the ups and downs of one of America’s greatest musicians, all with a little rhythm, funk and jive. “It’s a journey that a lot of women go through, not being condent in their own talent, then realizing it and really owning it,” says Fran Egler, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts’ director of programming and presentations. “We can all relate to it, which makes this story so special.” To complement the Tony Award-winning show’s second stint at the Academy of Music, the Kimmel Center is oering its Academy Gold membership to Broadway subscribers, featuring access to the Academy of Music Ballroom prior to the show to enjoy complimentary drinks and bites, plus live lounge entertainment. Now, that’s music to our ears. Jan. 8-20, tickets from $20, Academy Gold memberships from $750, 240 S. Broad St., kimmelcenter.org
