London’s newest hit musical ‘Beautiful – The Carole King Musical’, tells the story of chart-topping legend Carole King who fought her way into the record business. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of Carole’s remarkable rise to stardom from a teenager when she sold her first hit ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ at the age of just seventeen and through onto her adult years.
By her twenties she had a flourishing dream career writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock and roll including the Monkees, Aretha Franklin and the Drifters to name just a few. The musical follows the highs and lows of her personal life which finally allowed her to discover her true voice.
Beautiful tells the remarkable story of King’s rise to fame from being a part of a hit song writing team with her husband to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in music history.
With so many chart-topping hits, Beautiful has a great soundtrack including firm favourites such as You’ve Got a Friend, You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman, Take Good Care of my Baby, Up on the Roof, Locomotion and It Might As Well Rain Until September.
