A production in London 's West End opened on February 25,following previews beginning February 10,at the Aldwych Theatre. The musical began a U. A second U. Then, in Brooklynyear-old Carole tells her mother, Genie, she is going into Manhattan to try to sell a song to music publisher Donnie Kirshner.
In the long tradition of mothers, Genie is opposed to her daughter's wish and in the equally Beautiful - Carole King - Tapestry tradition of teenagers not caring about their mother's opinion, Carole goes anyway. At Broadwayshe hears the " Broadway Medley". Donnie says he will take it and hopes she has others. They agree to collaborate, musically Andy Pandy - David Shaw-Parker - Euromance romantically, which in both cases turns out to be a fertile arrangement.
When they go to Donnie's to play their new song, Carole confesses to Gerry that she is pregnant. Gerry asks her to marry him. It gives her an extra depth of feeling when she sings their new song for Donnie, " Some Kind of Wonderful ", which The Drifters then record. They get an office at Barry meets Cynthia and they decide to collaborate.
As they begin to work, sparks fly. Moss Path - Various - Archaic Honey Cuts tells them he needs a song for the Shirelles. The couples compete for the job. Donnie picks Carole and Gerry's song for The Shirelles and it goes to no.
And so, on either side of the same wall, a competition is born. During a break, Gerry confesses to Carole that he is restless in their marriage. He wants to sleep with Janelle, and he doesn't want to lie about it.
Carole is stunned. As the song begins again, she takes it over and sings it herself. Carole is in a recording studio doing a demo of "Chains". Gerry is off with Janelle but tells her he will meet her later. Nick, a guitarist, asks Carole to come sing at the Bitter End sometime but she declines — she's a songwriter, not a singer. The thing with Gerry is getting her down so she goes and talks to Cynthia who is also having trouble with Barry — they split up. Carole decides to tell Gerry he has to end the affair with Janelle.
As she leaves, Barry comes in. He and Cynthia make up and play their new song, "Walking in the Rain". Gerry shows up, but he is not making sense. He eventually has a breakdown. At the hospital, he tells Carole he will end the affair with Janelle and that he wants to come home. She suggests they make a new start and move to the suburbs "Pleasant Valley Sunday".
Barry, Cynthia and Donnie come to see the new house. Depressed that he and Carole can't do as well, Gerry leaves in a funk for the city. While he is gone, it comes out that Barry and Cynthia have seen him with another woman, a singer named Marilyn Wald. Carole goes to Marilyn's apartment and Gerry is there. It's the final straw, and she ends their marriage. At the Bitter End, where Barry and Cynthia hear their song "Uptown", Carole explains she went to Los Angeles for a vacation and has started writing on her own.
Nick, the guitarist from the studio who asked her to sing with his group, is playing there and urges her to sing. She sings her new song, "It's Too Late". She decides to move to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, she records her album, Tapestry. The session goes well until the last song, which she is afraid to sing. It's a song she wrote with Gerry and she is afraid of the feelings it may stir up. Her producer, Lou Adler, persuades her.
The album is a smash. Carole is at Carnegie Hall for her concert, and is met by Gerry, who apologizes for the way he mistreated her in the past and gives her a final prediction - "you're going all the way". Carole takes to the piano, and performs for her audience.

The album was also released on a vinyl format. Ben Brantleyreviewing for The New York Timescalled the musical a "friendly, formulaic bio-musical". He wrote that the musical shows the change in King from a modest songwriter to the popular and confident performer of those songs, showing the "real, conflicted person within the reluctant star.
Jesse Green, in his review for the New York Magazinepraised the performers but criticized the book, writing that the musical does not have the "dramatic coherence of book biomusicals".
She wrote that while the musical "doesn't hang its songs on the greatest or most Beautiful - Carole King - Tapestry story ever told, it has enough bounce and Broadway show glitz to keep you in your seat". On March 22,it was announced that Sony Pictures would be bringing the musical to the big screen with Douglas McGrath adapting his book into a screenplay and stage producer Paul Blake producing through Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman 's production company, Playtone.
