Some of you younger readers may think you’ve never heard of Carole King but trust me – you have, she has been responsible for some of the greatest songs ever written but, I’m not here tonight to school you on the history of music.

Nope – I’m here to shine a light on a tremendous show that is going to be pulling into the Cleveland Playhouse the first week of June.  It’s titled Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and it tells the tale of the incredilble talent, using her music as a catalyst for the tale.  One of those touring with this amazing show is one Ms. Ashley De La Rosa.  If the name sounds familar to you, there is a reason for that.  She was one of the headliners for Season Two of the wildly popular NBC show The Voice.

I got to sit down and have a chat with Ms. De La Rosa in anticipation of the upcoming show – click play below and listen to our little talk about her career and involvement in Beautiful.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical will run from June 5th – 1th and tickets range from $10 up to $100.  Here’s the official description of the show from the events webpage:

“BEAUTIFUL–The Carole King Musical 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.”
