Carole's Kings is the first all-male tribute to Carole King. Consisting of three talented singers and a backing band, Carole's Kings adds a twist to King's music by rearranging it for a live theatrical performance, with added choreography and witty exchanges between the singers and audience members. The show covers King's hits, like "The Locomotion," "You've Got a Friend," "I Feel the Earth Move," and other timeless classics that will probably leave you with a bit of nostalgia. Combining King's music with the comedic writings of Chicago's Second City, orchestrations from the composers of Jersey Boys, and a cast from Broadway, the show sends up a tribute to one of the most successful female songwriters in the US.
Carole's Kings performs Thursday, March 8, through Sunday, March 11, at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre Winton Place, 3450 Winton Place. Thursday at 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 3 p.m. $30-$33. downstairscabaret.com; caroleskings.com.
