Producers Paul Blake and Sony/ATV Music Publishing welcome back Jake Epstein, who originated the role of Gerry Goffin on Broadway in Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, returning to the role tonight, September 22, 2016.
Epstein takes over for Scott J. Campbell as Goffin, King's first husband and writing partner. Beautiful - The Carole King Musical is now in its third hit year at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street).
In addition to his role as 'Gerry Goffin' in Beautiful, Epstein is probably best known for his role as Craig Manning in "Degrassi: The Next Generation." His theater credits include Spider-Man, Straight, Spring Awakening, American Idiot, and Billy Elliot. Recently, Epstein co-wrote and starred in the play Therefore Choose Life in Toronto.
The current Broadway cast of Beautiful includes Chilina Kennedy as 'Carole King', Scott J. Campbell as 'Gerry Goffin', Jessica Keenan Wynn as 'Cynthia Weil,' Ben Jacoby as 'Barry Mann,' Paul Anthony Stewart as 'Don Kirshner', Tony Award nominee Liz Larsen as 'Genie Klein', an ensemble that includes Gisela Adisa, Douglas Carpenter, Kevin Duda, James Harkness, Laurel Harris, Sara King, Rebecca LaChance, Douglas Lyons, Rob Marnell, Chelsea Packard, Gabrielle Reid, Nicholas Ryan, Rashidra Scott, Kimber Sprawl, Yasmeen Sulieman, Nasia Thomas, Daniel Torres, Melvin Tunstall, and Alan Wiggins.
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.
