MILLTOWN, NJ - Pretty much everyone has heard a Carole King song from "So Far Way" to "One Fine Day" to "You've Got A Friend" and more. The singer/songwriter raised in Brooklyn has penned and co-written more than 100 songs that have made it to the Billboard charts. She is considered on of the most prolific songwriters of the twentieth century.

The Milltown Recreation Department is sponsoring a bus trip on Sunday, October 15 to see the Broadway hit, "Beautiful," which details the musician's rise to fame at the Stephen Sondheim Theater. Tickets are $135 per person and include round trip bus transportation into the Big Apple.

The bus leaves the Milltown Borough Hall at 9:30 a.m., allowing participants ample time to grab a quick bite and enjoy fall in NYC before the 2 p.m. matinee showtime. Seats are located in the front mezzanine. The running time of the Tony Award-winning musical is two and a half hours along with a 15 minute intermission.
