VIDEO: Carole King, Chilina Kennedy & Abby Mueller Talk Broadway's BEAUTIFUL on 'Today'

Six-time Grammy winner Carole King stopped by this morning's TODAY along with Chilina Kennedy, who plays King in the current Broadway production of BEAUTIFUL and Abby Mueller, who will take on the role for the show's National Tour. During the appearance, Kennedy and Mueller discuss what it's like to play a music legend while Carole herself reflects on the first time she ever saw the show.

The Tony Award-winning hit BEAUTIFUL - THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL follows the early life and career of the legendary and groundbreaking singer/songwriter Carole King. The show has been breaking box office records at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street) since it opened in January 2014.

With a book by Tony and Academy Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni and choreography byJosh Prince, Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil. As previously announced, the show will expand to London, with a West End production opening at The Aldwych Theatre in February 2015, and will also launch a U.S. National Tour in September 2015.

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.

The creative team, which will reprise their work for the West End and touring productions, 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).
