Beautiful: The Carole King Musical had just opened on Broadway; both being Carole King fans they thought—what better music for their show? Knowing their own strengths leaned more toward Jersey Boys, Carole’s Kings was born. Choreographer Kate Bailey (currently in Frozen) completes the creative team. They open with “Locomotion” (King/Gerry Goffin) and take us through several early rock pieces before settling in with King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” and a gorgeous arrangement of “Jazzman” featuring Caleb Damschroder on piano.

They include “Christmas in Paradise” which King wrote with her daughter and is perfect for a cruise audience. They close out the first half with “One Fine Day” (King/Goffin) and “Beautiful” (King).

The second act opens strong with the Barry Mann/Cynthia Weill classics “On Broadway” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.

” They take moments to tell personal stories: Bucciarelli about his dad, Jimmy Bucciarelli from Jersey; and Damschroder about working with Alan Cumming. His “Ring Them Bells” was a little fast but fun. Linden brought up the dynamic Hana Freeman for “Suddenly Seymore” (Alan Menkin/Howard Ashman). A medley of King’s movie and television credits, which include “Anyone at All” from You’ve Got Mail and “Now and Forever” from A League of Our Own, are rich with harmony and emotion. Bucciarelli, who is working on a one-man show about his dad, finished with a poem Jimmy wrote, followed by “The Impossible Dream” (Mitch Leigh/Joe Darion). Carole’s Kings books cruises, but performs primarily in cabaret venues and theaters.
