Beautiful is the story of Carole King and her incredible rise to stardom which started when she was just 17, and she sold her first song: Will You Love Me Tomorrow. The Carole King Musical at the Aldwych Theatre is an unmissable show that will amaze, inspire and stay with you for years to come.
Carole King was an incredible and unique talent who broke into the music industry as a teenager and was writing hits for the biggest rock ‘n’ roll stars in her twenties. Huge acts such as Aretha Franklin, the Monkees, the Drifters, and the Shirelles all came knocking on her door for some of her outstanding songs.
Although everything was going perfectly for Carole; she found the perfect husband and her career was a dream come true, something had to give… It wasn’t until her personal life started to deteriorate that she managed to find her true voice.
Beautiful, the Carole King Musical is an inspiring true story about stardom and song writing. It follows her incredible life and career, her marriage and writing partnership with her husband Gerry Goffin and her relationship with Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. Against all the odds she became one of the most loved solo acts of the time and wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
The Musical features classic hits such as You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman, Take Good Care of my Baby, You’ve Got a Friend, So Far Away, It Might As Well Rain Until September, Up on the Roof, and Locomotion.
