Buy Tickets For Beautiful: The Carole King MusicalBuy Tickets

You'll Feel the earth move!

Since debuting in 2014, Beautiful has grown in stature to become one of Broadway's best loved jukebox musicals. It tells the story of Carole King, following her rise to fame as one of pop music's greatest ever songwriters, and the turbulence in her personal life that threatened to derail all her success. While it packs in all the hits, from 'You've Got a Friend' to '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman', it never loses sight of the the emotional heart of its story, crafting a blockbuster musical with poignant moments and truly rounded characters.

During its time on the Great White Way, Beautiful has won two Tonys, three Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy for its cast recording. Endorsed by Carole King herself, this show takes you way beyond the music!

What is Beautiful About?

Before she became an icon, Carole King was just another songwriter, travelling into New York in the hopes of selling her songs to a big music publisher. Her prodigious talent was easy to spot though, and soon she's penning numbers for the likes of The Shirelles and The Righteous Brothers, alongside her co-writer and husband Gerry Goffin. The course of love never did run smooth though, and soon cracks emerge in Carole and Gerry's relationship. As her marriage begins to crumble, Carole must stay strong to herself to achieve her dreams, and become the legend that we know today.

Did you know?

Carole King had her first number one when she was just 17! 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow', co-written by King and Goffin, reached the top of the Billboard chart in January 1961, in a version sung by The Shirelles.
