VIDEO: Legendary Songwriter Barry Mann Sings 'On Broadway' To Promote San Francisco's BEAUTIFUL

While the Broadway hit BEAUTIFUL celebrates the pop classics of Carole King, there is also strong representation from the songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, such as "He's Sure the Boy I Love," "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," "Walking In The Rain," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" and a little song about New York's major thoroughfare.

Mann and Weil originally wrote "On Broadway" together and the song was first released by The Crystals, but then the duo combined with another great songwriting team, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, to revise the number into what became a great hit for The Drifters.

Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil were on hand last night for a special "In Conversation" event promoting the Beautiful tour's upcoming stop at San Francisco's SHN Orpheum Theatre, August 9th through September 18th, and Mann took the opportunity to sit at the piano and play an old classic.

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.

With a book by Tony and Academy Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni and choreography by Josh Prince, Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Beautiful - The Carole King Musical (Ghostlight Records), the 2015 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Theater Album, is available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl. In addition to the hit Broadway production, award-winning productions are playing in London's West End and on tour across the US.

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).
