Feel the Earth Move Under Your Feet When You’ve Got a Walk-on in Beautiful - The Carole King Musical.
Your two guests won’t be “so far away” as they sit in VIP house seats as you make “some kind of wonderful” walk-on “on Broadway” in the Tony Award-winning smash hit Beautiful - The Carole King Musical. This is an extraordinary chance to take to the stage of the Stephen Sondheim Theatre with the outstanding cast and watch the backstage workings of one of Broadway’s biggest hits.
- Begin by having rehearsal with the stage management team and being taken to wardrobe for your 1960s-period costume.
- You will discuss with stage managers which scene you best fit into. College students will join Carole King around the piano when she meets her future songwriting partner and husband, Gerry Goffin. Following that scene you will then step into the world of 1650 Broadway, the legendary building where the hits of the ’60s were written and music’s most legendary songwriters discovered at Don Kirshner’s Aldon Music. Adult walk-ons will share a table in Act 2 at the Bitter End with the “Uptown Singer” and the band, as Carole King meets up with friends Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
- You will see how Carole King’s world is recreated onstage when you watch the show from unique vantage points: in the pit with musicians; stage right and stage left with the crew; from the booth with sound technicians and from “air traffic control” - the stage manager’s booth backstage. From here you’ll see it all as only Broadway professionals do.
- After the show, your guests will join you backstage to congratulate you and get a tour.
- Take home a Beautiful poster signed by the cast to mark this special “one fine day.”
