Carole King musical heads to Australia next year
The multi award-winning Broadway hit musical Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will make its Australian premiere at a newly refurbished Sydney Lyric Theatre from September 2017.
The true story of the singer's journey from schoolgirl to international superstar features a book by Tony and Academy Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, choreography by Josh Prince and an array of songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil.
Hits include Will You Love Me Tomorrow, It’s Too Late, Take Good Care of My Baby, Locomotion, You’ve Got a Friend, (You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman, So Far Away, One Fine Day, Tapestry and I Feel the Earth Move along with chart busting Mann/Weil tunes such as You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling, On Broadway and Uptown.
Australian Producer, Michael Cassel said: “This show is simply ‘some kind of wonderful’. I am very excited to bring this sensational show to Australian shores – Carole King might be a native New Yorker but her music is loved the world over and her story is universal. Carole King wrote the soundtrack to a generation and I can’t wait for Australian audiences to experience this smash-hit production in Sydney.”
