NEW YORK (AP) — Jessie Mueller has nabbed a beautiful Broadway role — she'll be playing celebrated songwriter Carole King in a new musical about the woman who wrote such hits as "It's Too Late" and "You've Got a Friend."

Producers said Monday that Mueller, who was last on Broadway opposite Matthew Broderick in "Nice Work If You Can Get It," will lead "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," which starts previews Nov. 21 at the Steven Sondheim Theatre.

King composed dozens of 1960s hits with then-husband Gerry Goffin before emerging as a recording artist in her own right. Her 25 million-selling "Tapestry" launched the singer-songwriter era in 1971 and became the first real blockbuster album.

The new musical is written by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Douglas McGrath.
