The West End production of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, opened on Tuesday 24 February 2014 at the Aldwych Theatre, London.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is the untold story of her journey from school girl to superstar; from her relationship with husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, their close friendship and playful rivalry with fellow song-writing duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, to her remarkable rise to stardom. Along the way, she became one of the most successful solo acts in music history, and wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
Guests on opening night included Carole King as well as Kelly Adams, David Baddiel, Simon Bartholomew, Michael Brandon, Louise Brealey, Fiona Bruce, Petula Clark, Sara Cox, Graeme Clarke, Michelle Collins, Natalie Gumede, Jessica Hynes, Dawn Joseph, Camilla Kerslake, Lynda La Plante, Jan Kincaid, Andrew Levy, Cherie Lunghi, Barry Mann, Andrea Mclean, Elaine Paige, Claire Sweeney, Bruno Tonioli, Cynthia Weil, John Williams and Victoria Wood
