Producers Paul Blake and Sony/ATV Music Publishing announce that the Tony &
Grammy Award-winning Broadway hit “Beautiful—The
Carole King Musical”, about the early life and career of the legendary and
groundbreaking singer/songwriter, will make its Jacksonville premiere at the
Times-Union Center for one week only!
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol
Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the
record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had
the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest
acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack
that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful tells the inspiring
true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit
songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow
writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the
most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made
more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Beautiful features a stunning array of
beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil,
including: “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One
Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend”
and the title song.
“Carole King might be a native New
Yorker, but her story of struggle and triumph is as universal as they come –
and her music is loved the world over,” producer Paul Blake said. “I
am thrilled that Beautiful continues to delight and entertain audiences around
the globe, in England, Japan and Australia and that we are entering our third
amazing year on the road in the U.S. We
are so grateful that close to four million audience members have fallen in love
with Carole's story and her indelible music.”
The Original Broadway Cast Recording of “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical”
(Ghostlight Records) won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album
and is available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl. Beautiful launched its first US National Tour
in September 2015, and is also currently playing internationally, with
productions in Japan, Australia and touring the UK. An Award-winning production recently
concluded its run in London’s West End after opening on February 25, 2015.
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).
“Beautiful - The Carole
King Musical” is recommended for ages 10 years and older. There is no
foul language but there is talk about the use of drugs. For

It’s a little after Spring Break and time for you to enjoy some quality
entertainment. Saxophonist Louis Jordan
created a new slant on jazz in the 1940’s that paved the way for rock and roll in
the 1950s. Nominated for a 1992 Best
Musical Tony® Award and winner of the 1991 Laurence Oliver Award for Best
Entertainment, “Five Guys Named Moe” brings Jordan’s music to life through the eyes of main character
Nomax, at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining.
Nomax, whose girlfriend has left him and is without money, finds “Big Moe,” “Four-Eyed
Moe,” “Eat Moe,” “No Moe,” and “Little Moe” emerging from his radio to comfort
him. The result is two hours of lively,
funky music that the LA Times called, “one
of the more entertaining experiences available to humanity.”
About “Five Guys Named Moe”: An exuberant tribute to the music of rhythm and
blues pioneer and alto saxophonist, Louis
Jordan, “Five Guys Named Moe” is
an international sensation. Initially
produced in London's West End by the legendary Cameron Mackintosh, this
exhilarating, all-embracing theatrical experience moved to Broadway in 1992 and
was nominated for two Tony Awards.Chef
“Five Guys Named Moe” is mostly
about Nomax – he's broke, his lovely Lorraine left him and he's listening to
the radio at 5 o’clock in the morning. Out
of the radio, five guys named Moe appear. Set to Jordan's iconic rhythm and blues/jazz
score, the Moes encourage Nomax to turn his life around and tell Lorraine that
he loves her. The recognizable and
enticing score appeals to a variety of audiences, and the uproarious audience
participation will have spectators leaping out of their seats to join the
celebration. It’s not too late to get
