The show follows the early life of King, a songwriter in the record business. She writes successful songs with her lyricist- husband Gerry Goffin (played by actor Jake Epstein). Initially, she is reluctant to perform and her lack of confidence thwarts her to become the star she was destined to become. Being a woman and a mother, she prefers to stay at home. As Gerry becomes unfaithful, her songwriter friends support her decision to leave him. And with a nudge here and there, they help her with her album Tapestry which becomes her claim to fame.
The musical is in the jukebox style, with popular hits. Jessie Mueller, in her rich voice, sings and performs some of the hits by King. These include “So Far Away”, “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” and “It’s Too Late” among many others.
The biographical show premiered in the fall of 2013 in San Francisco, where its entire run was sold out. Premiering on the Broadway in early 2014, the show has successfully entertained King’s fans and music lovers. Jessie Mueller has won Tony and Drama Desk awards for her outstanding performance.
