Why See Beautiful: The Carole King Musical?

TONY WINNING BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL IS ON TOUR

Tracing the career of Carole King, and endorsed by the beloved Grammy winner herself, Beautiful is the feel good hit of 2014, scoring two 2014 Tony Awards. Described by The New York Times as 'A complex, revitalizing portrait of the real, conflicted person within the reluctant star', we learn about King's inspiring, but rocky road to the icon she is today. Broadway star Abby Mueller will star as Carole, taking over the role from her sister Jessie who won a Tony for her performance on Broadway!

Featuring songs from her back catalogue, as a solo artist and co-writer, Beautiful revisits 'Uptown,' '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,' 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' and 'You've Got a Friend', amongst many more, with touching grace, proving it's much more than just another jukebox musical.

The road to stardom...

Before rising to one of the 20th Century's best-selling stars, plain Carol Klein was a talented teenager, living in Brooklyn and making music. But it's her co-writing, with husband Gerry Goffin that gets her noticed. Breaking through into the music business as a songwriter for some of the day's biggest artists, she discovers there is more to juggle whilst following her dreams. All is not what it seems with her fairy-tale life. It's only when we fall, that we learn to fly.

Lose yourself in the Tony winning Beautiful on it's first national tour, and see the journey that led to finding her true voice.

DID YOU KNOW?

'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow', penned with Goffin, was Carol's first Number One hit, when she was just 17!
