A musical based on the life of legendary singer-songwriter Carole King will open on Broadway in the spring of 2014. The show, entitled, “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” will chronicle King’s life from her early days in Brooklyn to her rise to superstardom.

King “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 hot career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock’n’roll,” the producers said in a statement.

The musical will feature songs written by King and her first husband and collaborator, Gerry Goffin, as well as Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
