Tracing the career of Carole King, and endorsed by the beloved Grammy winner herself, Beautiful is already shaping up to be the feel good hit of 2014, scoring it's star, Jessie Mueller a 2014 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. In a performance that was described by The New York Times as 'A complex, revitalizing portrait of the real, conflicted person within the reluctant star', we learn about King's inspiring, but rocky road to the icon she is today.
Featuring songs from her back catalogue, as a solo artist and co-writer, Beautiful revisits 'Uptown,' '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,' 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' and 'You've Got a Friend', amongst many more, with touching grace, proving it's much more than just another jukebox musical.
Before rising to one of the 20th century's bestselling stars, plain Carol Klien was a talented teenager, living in Brooklyn and making music. But it's her co-writing, with husband Gerry Goffin that gets her noticed. Breaking through into the music business as a songwriter for some of the day's biggest artists, she discovers there is more to juggle whilst following her dreams. All is not what it seems with her fairy-tale life. It's only when we fall, that we learn to fly.
Lose yourself in the Tony winning Beautiful, and see the journey that led to finding her true voice.
'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow', penned with Goffin, was Carol's first Number One hit, when she was just 17!
