A theater company most terrible is about to stage a murder most foul … no good can come of this. Actually, these wannabe thespians will be lucky to make it through opening night without some real corpses stacking up, because this is The Play That Goes Wrong. And boy, does it. But what’s a chaotic series of mishaps for them makes for “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post) and proof that sometimes something’s so wrong it’s right. Broadway’s most award-winningest comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has racked up more laurels than Caesar, conquering stages from Paris to London to New York, and now it’s coming to wreak hilarious havoc on The Winspear Opera House in Dallas. See for yourself why Forbes said, “You’ll never have a better time in a theater!”

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such classics as “You’ve Got a Friend” and “I Feel the Earth Move,” she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice, writing and performing the soundtrack to a generation. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from 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. It’s no surprise that Beautiful – The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. A resounding success on Broadway, this unforgettable show now comes to Dallas’ Winspear Opera House.
