Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
- Her Majesty’s Theatre
- Friday 16th February to Sunday 13th May
You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You’re gonna find, yes, you will
That you’re beautiful, you’re beautiful, you’re beautiful as you feel
Carole King wrote the song “Beautiful” when she had some sort of epiphany while taking the subway in New York.
This song then became part of 1971 award winning album, Tapestry. And this also became the title of the musical about the early life and career of the legendary singer and songwriter, Carole King.
With the original production debuting in San Francisco in October 2013 and its Broadway debut on January 2014, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical finally hits our shores starting from February 16th.
The musical had its Australian debut back in September 2016 in Sydney and now it’s Melbourne’s turn.
Playing the iconic Carole King is Esther Hannaford. Hannaford is no stranger to the limelight as she was originally part of the original Australian production of Hairspray. In Hairspray, she played the role of Penny Pingleton – a role for which she received Helpmann Award.
Catch Beautiful: The Carole King Musical from 16 February to 13 May at the Her Majesty’s Theatre – what a great Mother’s Day gift!
