This is the story of an extraordinary talent, a legend of a musician whose songs topped the charts time and time again. Carole King took on the music business as a teenager, determined to succeed. By the time she was in her twenties she had everything and the world was at her feet: a dream husband, chart success plus numerous hits written for stars like Aretha Franklin, the Drifters and the Shirelles.
She always sang like an angel. But her best work was only created when her life started to fall apart, when she finally found her true voice. Beautiful the musical tells her unforgettable story, a real emotional adventure covering her remarkable rise to stardom, her husband Gerry Goffin, her fascinating relationships with other musicians and lots more.
An outstanding performance of a remarkable jukebox show, this peek into the life and times of one of the most successful solo acts in chart history is a treat for anyone who adores great music. It's the soundtrack of her generation, packed with superbly-performed King classics including You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman, You’ve Got a Friend, So Far Away and Up on the Roof. A singalong treat of an evening out!
