Playbill’s Drop the Mic series launches with Abby Mueller's beguiling cover of “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” from Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which plays its 1,500th performance August 17 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
Mueller currently stars as pop icon Carole King; in the music video above, she is accompanied on guitar by Micah Burgess.
With a book by Tony and Oscar nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince, Beautiful features an array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil.
Beautiful opened on Broadway January 12, 2014 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, where it holds the record for the playhouse's longest-running show. Original title player Jessie Mueller, sister to the musical's current star, won a Tony for her performance.
