Carole King musical on tap for Broadway

– A musical based on the woman behind such pop standards as “It’s Too Late,” “You’ve Got a Friend” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” hopes to make it to Broadway.

Producers on Friday announced plans to take “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” to the Great White Way by spring 2014. The story is written by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Douglas McGrath.

King composed dozens of 1960s hits with then-husband Gerry Goffin before emerging as a recording artist in her own right. Her 25 million-selling “Tapestry” launched the singer-songwriter era in 1971 and became the first real blockbuster album.

The musical will chart King’s rise set to the music that made her an icon.
