SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL NEWS: As previously announced beginning June 27th, 2019, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton will make her Broadway Debut taking on the lead role of "Carole King" in the Tony and Grammy winning smash hit Beautiful – The Carole King Musical for a 10 week engagement at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
The production's longest running leading lady Chilina Kennedy played her final performance after over 2,000 performances this past Sunday, June 9th, 2019 (same day of the Tony Awards) before kicking off the National Tour of last year's Tony winning smash hit The Band's Visit later this month.
Currently during the interim before Carlton's first performance, the role of the iconic Grammy winning singer-songwriter will be rotated by the show's 2 incredible understudies who truly are NATURAL WOMEN themselves….
Sara Sheperd (The show's Dance Captain and Swing who has been with BEAUTIFUL since DAY 1 and previously appeared on Broadway in Cry-Baby)
Break a leg Elena, Sara, and Vanessa!!!
Happy Trails Chilina!!!
