Songwriter Carole King scored her first number-one hit, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," when she was only 17. Along with her then-husband Gerry Goffin, the duo known as "Goffin and King" went on to compose a string of hits, including "Take Good Care of My Baby," "The Locomotion," and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." The new musical "Beautiful" explores Carole King's life -- from her prodigal rise to fame to her painful divorce from Goffin -- while showcasing her songs. Actors Jessie Mueller and Jake Epstein join us in-studio to talk about starring as the couple.

Guests:

Jessie Mueller, actor playing Carole King in "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical"

Jake Epstein, actor playing Gerry Goffin in "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical"
