Beautiful: The Carole King Musical – Show Description



Beautiful is an inspiring musical that traces the life of Carole King, one of the most successful singer/songwriters of modern times.

When she was just 17 years old, a young talented star in the rising sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow. So gifted was Miss King at writing songs that by time she was 20, the young American was writing hit tracks for some of the biggest acts on the music circuit – The Monkees, Aretha Franklin, the Shirelles and the Drifters, all benefited from Carole King’s exceptional talent.

Despite inaugurating the careers of many musical stars of the era, it was not until the 1970s when Carole King finally tackled the charts herself and became a performer in her own right. With her piano as backup, Miss King began to mesmerise audiences, both in concerts and in the charts.

In 1971, Carole King’s album Tapestry topped the US charts and stayed there for a whopping 15 weeks. In fact, Tapestry remained in the charts for the following six years.

Beautiful relives this remarkable career of an extraordinary rise from being an ordinary girl to a global sensation. The musical provides previously untold insight of Carole King’s relationship with her husband Gerry Goffin, who was also her song-writing partner. It also depicts the playful rivalry with fellow song-writing duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical premiered on Broadway in January 2014. Carole King herself attended the performance in April 2014 and appeared on stage with the cast at the curtain call. Following King’s appearance on stage, the musical quickly snowballed into a great success.

Carole King admitted she was thrilled that Beautiful was transferring to the West End.

“I love that the next chapter of the Beautiful story is taking place in London’s West End. I have so many good friends in London and warm memories of good times there. I can’t wait to re-visit!, said Carole King.

Beautiful is playing at the Aldwych Theatre from February 10 2015. The show features some of King’s classic hits, including as Take Good Care Of My Baby, So Far Away and It Might As Well Rain Until September.
