Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is coming to an end.

The record-breaking hit musical will end after nearly six years on Broadway, producers Paul Blake and Mike Bosner confirmed on Wednesday (July 17).

By the time it closes, the musical will have been staged for 60 previews and 2,418 regular performances, becoming the 27th longest-running musical in Broadway history.

Beautiful opened on Broadway on January 13, 2014, and went on to become a Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning success. The show stars Jessie Mueller and Jake Epstein as Carole King and Gerry Goffin. It’s also the longest-running and highest-grossing show in the history of the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

The final performance will be on October 27, 2019.
