About Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
Long before she was Carole King, Brooklyn born Carol Joan Klein fought her way into the record business as a teenage songwriter, initially as one of the staff songwriters at the Brill Building and later as a solo artist. She is the most successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century in the US, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
King also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK, making her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts between 1952 and 2005. Her music was the soundtrack to a generation, writing chart topping hits for the biggest stars of Rock & Roll including Little Eva, The Shirelles, The Drifters, James Taylor, Bobby Vee & The Beatles before becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.
Carole King has made 25 solo albums, the most successful being Tapestry, which held the record for most weeks at No. 1 by a female artist for more than 20 years. Her record sales are estimated at more than 75 million copies worldwide.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, the true story of the legendary singer’s journey from schoolgirl to international Grammy-winning superstar that features an array of beloved songs including Will You Love Me Tomorrow, Locomotion, You’ve Got a Friend, Natural Woman, One Fine Day and I Feel the Earth Move.
Directed by Col Peet with Musical Direction by Peter Sampson and Choreography by Dolores Dunbar.
