‘Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook’ at Centenary Stage Company


Centenary Stage Company’s 2017 – 18 Curtain Up! event features the “earth moving” Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook on Saturday, September 16 at 8PM in the Lackland Performing Arts Center. Suzanne O. Davis embodies Carole King, recreating the sound and vibe of a 1970’s Carole King concert. Following her legendary album, Tapestry not only presents the record-breaking Grammy winning album of the same name, but is a retrospective of the iconic songwriting team of Goffin and King.  The prolific team wrote chart – topping hits for such artists as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vee, The Beatles, James Taylor, the Drifters, Donny Osmond and, of course, King whose hits continued into the 70’s.

Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook has performed to sold out audiences across the United States and Canada.  Davis notes, “The band and I feel [the love of Carole King] from the audience within the first song… When I play and sing this music at the piano, I feel like I’ve really found my spot… The audience seems to want to go with me on this musical journey during these concerts. I’ve waited several years to be able to have the time to put this show together, and the time is right, and the time is now.”
