Singer/songwriter Carole King's story of early struggles and triumph has received appropriately musical dressing in Beautiful, which makes its New Orleans debut at the Saenger Theatre. Since its Broadway opening at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in January 2014, the production has become the highest-grossing in the venue's history. See the legend in ascent, and keep your ears tuned for such familiar hits as “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. 7:30 pm on Tuesday—Thursday and Sunday; 8 pm Friday and Saturday; 2 pm matinées on Saturday and Sunday.
