WHAT:  BROADWAY MUSICAL…”BEAUTIFUL”…THE CAROL KING STORY

WHEN:  SUNDAY, JUNE 11

WHERE:  NEW YORK CITY



SHOW SYNOPSIS:  Before she was Carole King, superstar—she was Carol Klein, teenage songwriter.

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.

WHAT:  “THE GREAT COMET”…BROADWAY MUSICAL STARRING JOSH GROBAN

WHEN:  SATURDAY, JUNE 17

WHERE:  NEW YORK CITY



SHOW SYNOPSIS:  Natasha, Pierre & THE GREAT COMET of 1812 stars multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban in his Broadway debut. Inspired by a 70-page slice of War and Peace, this "vibrant, thrillingly imagined new musical" (The New York Times) is "stunning and blazingly original" (Entertainment Weekly) and brings us just inches from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a “heaven-sent fireball" (The New York Times) of romance and passion.



NATASHA IS YOUNG, ANATOLE IS HOT, AND ANDREY ISN'T HERE… BUT WHAT ABOUT PIERRE? Natasha is a beautiful ingĂ©nue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiancĂ© Andrey to return from the war. In a moment of indiscretion, she is seduced by the dashing (but already married) Anatole and her position in society is ruined. Her only hope lies with Pierre (Groban), the lonely outsider whose love and compassion for Natasha may be the key to her redemption… and to the renewal of his own soul.



"One of the decade's best musicals" (Time Out New York), THE GREAT COMET has "rousing music and ravishing performances" (Daily News) with a groundbreaking score that mixes rock, pop, soul, folk and electronic dance music with classic Broadway. THE GREAT COMET arrives fresh off its sold-out run in Boston and its critically acclaimed Off-Broadway premiere. Its renowned creative team has reimagined the Imperial Theatre as an opulent Russian salon, where every seat provides a unique perspective and an unforgettable experience which is “thrilling, a feast for the senses" (Associated Press) and

"inventive, ravishing and full-on romantic" (New York Post).



Cost of the trip is $179 per person and includes:

·       Bus ticket

·       Driver’s gratuity

·       Front mezzanine show ticket

·       Breakfast items and beverages for ride to NYC

·       Three hours of free time before the show
