Supergirl star Melissa Benoist is about to fly over to New York City’s iconic Broadway to make her stage debut!
Benoist has already shown off her incredible singing capabilities when she starred on the Fox series Glee, but now she’s taking on a legend as she’s set to star in the musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Benoist will be joining the cast in the role of Carole King next month at the Stephen Sondheim Theater in New York.
In a joint statement, producer Paul Blake and Sony/ATV Music Publishing expressed their excitement regarding Benoist joining the cast by saying:

The musical’s website describes the show best: Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells “the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable journey from teenage songwriter to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame” superstar we know and love today.
