The Olivier, Tony and Grammy Award-winning Musical, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is now playing at London’s Aldwych Theatre
Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.
She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and sold her first hit, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", when she was just seventeen. By the time she reached her twenties she had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll from Aretha Franklin to the Monkees, the Drifters, to the Shirelles. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.
Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting 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 Woman", "Take Good Care of my Baby", "You’ve Got a Friend", "So Far Away", "It Might As Well Rain Until September", "Up on the Roof" and "Locomotion".
The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there. In the heat and humidity of the rural Norfolk summer in 1900, a young boy comes of age as he is unwittingly enlisted as a messenger in an adult affair of deceit and desire.
A musical fable of Broadway. Based on story and characters by Damon Runyon. Book written in 1950. A Salvation Army officer, Sister Sarah, attempts to save the souls of the New York gamblers. "Luck be a Lady", "I've Never Been in Love Before", "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat"
Set below the stage of the Paris Opera - a horribly deformed ex -performer 'haunts' the backstage and public areas - insisting that he has a box for his own private use. He falls in love with a beautiful young chorus singer and trains his pupil (who never sees him) to take over the star role. She excels and everyone wonders where she came from and how she developed such a beautiful voice. The Phantom, who has now revealed himself to her, decides to take her with him to spend her life in his subterranean lair but she is rescued by her lover.
Based on Edna Ferber's novel, the musical begins when Cap'n Andy docks his show boat for a performance. However all does not quite go according to plan when his daughter falls in love with a local gambler, while his leading lady is forced to leave the show. The 1927 musical features the classics 'O' Man River', 'Make Believe', 'Can't Help Lovin Dat Man' and 'You are Love'.
The West End’s most celebrated new show is now winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
Sunny Afternoon also won Oliviers for Best Actor (John Dagliesh), Best Supporting Actor (George Maguire), and Outstanding Achievement in Music (Ray Davies).
With music and lyrics by Ray Davies, a new book by Joe Penhall and direction by Edward Hall, Sunny Afternoon depicts the rise to stardom of The Kinks. Set against the back-drop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.
The Kinks exploded onto the 60’s music scene with a raw, energetic new sound that rocked a nation. But how did that happen, where exactly did they come from and what happened next?
The new musical features many of the band’s hits, including: "You Really Got Me", "Waterloo Sunset", "Dedicated Follower Of Fashion", "All Day And All Of The Night", "Lola", "Sunny Afternoon" and many more.
