Beautiful The Carole King Musical

Beautiful The Carole King Musical

This event has passed.

A brand new production of the Award Winning West End and Broadway show, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, comes to Plymouth!

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 song-writing 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, with 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.

Book by Douglas McGrath
Words and Music by Gerry Goffin & Carole King, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil
Music by arrangement with SONY/ATV Music Publishing
Originally produced on Broadway and in London by Paul Blake, SONY/ATV Music Publishing & Mike Bosner
