Here’s a taster of the new UK tour of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical as it opens this weekend.
The musical – which recently celebrated five years on Broadway – ran in the West End for two and a half years before a first UK tour in 2017.
A second national UK tour launches this Saturday (January 11) at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley.
