Following a run of two and a half years in the West End and a sell-out tour in 2017/18, The Olivier, Tony and Grammy award-winning Beautiful-The Carole King Musical will hit the road again and tour throughout the UK and Ireland in 2020, performing at Bristol Hippodrome from February 25-29.
Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.
Beautiful-The Carole King Musical 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. The show also includes the Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann hit songs You’ve Lost that Lovin Feeling, On Broadway and We Gotta Get out of This Place.
Entertainment South Wales reviewer, Rachel Howells said of the show in 2018:
“The show ended with an uplifting encore, leaving me wanting to listen to more of her music and learn more about her life. A Beautiful insight into one of music’s all-time greats!”
Casting for the UK Tour will be announced shortly.
