A background to Beautiful - The Carole King Musical
Inspired by the life and work of the talented Carole King, Douglas McGrath scripted the stage book for the delightful Beautiful – The Carole King Musical. The show premiered at the Curran Theatre in San Fransisco in October 2013 with original choreography by Josh Prince and direction by Marc Bruni. Three months later it made its Broadway debut at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. In April 2014 Carole King herself delighted audiences when she appeared on stage for the curtain call and sang “You've Got A Friend” together with the cast. Since opening on Broadway Beautiful - The Carole King Musical has been staged in London's West End as well as being seen on tour in the USA, the UK and Australia.
Beautiful – The Carole King Musical charts the previously untold story of Carole King as she journeys from school girl to superstar. The story explores her relationship with Gerry Goffin, her husband and songwriting partner along with their friendly rivalry with songwriting duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. King was a tenacious teenager who sold her first hit, The Shirelles' “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” at the early age of 17. By the time she reached 21 Carole King was celebrated in the music world for the chart-topping songs she penned for acts such as the Monkees, Aretha Franklin and the Drifters. Her biggest challenge, however, was finding her own voice and confidence as a solo performer.
