The Carole King Musical

A brand new production of the Award Winning West End and Broadway show, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, comes to Edinburgh.

Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit song-writing team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

Along the way, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation, with countless classics such as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural WomanTake Good Care of My BabyYou've Got a FriendSo Far Away, It Might as Well Rain Until SeptemberUp on the Roof, and The Locomotion.

Contains strobe lighting and haze effects.

Produced on Broadway and in London by Paul Blake, SONY/ATV Music Publishing and Mike Bosner
