Beautiful tickets

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical was the hottest ticket on Broadway in 2014, selling out the Stephen Sondheim Theatre night after night. Now running at the West End's Aldwych Theatre, Beautiful is now replicating its New York success in London.

Winning two Olivier Awards in its opening year, Beautiful is one of the most successful jukebox musicals in decades.

The show tells the true and empowering tale of Carole King and her rise to song writing stardom. From her early years living with her mother in Brooklyn to the pinnacle of her career singing as a solo artist at Carnegie Hall, Beautiful tells Carole's tale, warts and all.

Carole starts off her career as a songwriter, penning tunes for hit musical artists such as The Drifters and The Shirelles. Collaborating with her husband, Gerry Goffin, the pair rise to success, penning many number 1 hits. The pair then meet rivals turned friends, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, whose hit songs are also peppered throughout the show. As a foursome, they could go far, unfortunately Gerry's eye starts to wander.

From somebody very much defined by her work with her husband and her work for others, Carole manages to find the inner strength and talent to eventually define herself as a performer in her own right.

Featuring the beloved musical numbers "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Take Good Care of My Baby," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "The Locomotion," and "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman," the show is guaranteed to be a treat for the ears!

Set for it's final London run, Beautiful really is a must see musical, so don't miss out and get your tickets now.

Performance dates: 03 Nov 2017 - 05 Aug 2017

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: Budget permitting, it is best to avoid tickets in the back 5 rows of the Stalls. In these seats the Dress Circle overhang cuts off views of high parts of the set, which are occasionally used in the show.

I loved the show. Wish that I hadn't left it so long to go and see it as it was in its final week when I attended the theatre. I didn't know that Carole King had written all of those songs. The staging was good, singing and acting also good. The girl playing Carole was so funny and endearing. Wish that I could have seen it again.

Managed to catch this in the final week before it closed - very pleased I did! A very well put-together jukebox musical which focuses more on constructing a good story rather than just throwing some songs in a show. Actors & musicians were all brilliant. A very feel good show with a strong enough to story to be quite powerful too!

I loved it! So many recognisable songs that you might not necessarily know she had written, and a biographical story told in such a 'beautiful' way. It has the perfect combination of humour and emotion, and the performance from the actress playing Carole King (Cassidy Janson here, but I had previously seen Katie Brayben) was probably one of the most extraordinary things I've ever seen. This was its closing night in London, but it's about to go on tour so go and see it in a theatre near you!
