Episode #262: Sara Sheperd & James D. Gish - Playing the Roles of Carole King and Gerry Goffin in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
The guests for this episode are Sara Sheperd and James D. Gish, who play the roles of Carole King and Gerry Goffin respectively in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Carole King has long been one of the most prolific songwriters for decades. Beautiful is the story of her rise to a legendary status in the history music, detailing her songwriting partnership with her husband Gerry Goffin along with their relationship with fellow songwriting team Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. It’s the story of true determination, where the good and bad times of her life helped shape the person she would become.
During our conversation, we talked about being back on stage after the pandemic lockdowns, how things have changed in regards to workers rights, how they prepared for their roles, the accessibility of Beautiful to your casual audience member, and much more.
