Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, the Olivier and Tony Award-winning West End production returns to Birmingham following a sell-out run in November.
“The audience loves Beautiful” (Daily Mail) and critics agree! Called “slick and beautifully played” (The Times), the “amazing story of the song writing talents of Carole King told through laughter and tears” (BBC Radio 2), critics ae celebrating this “tapestry of greatest hits” (The Guardian).
Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.
Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.
Along the way she wrote the soundtrack to a generation, including one of the best-selling albums of all time, Tapestry, and countless classics 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 The Locomotion.
