Following a highly successful West End run, Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, will be staged at the Bristol Hippodrome this month as part of a UK tour.

This spectacular show tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom.

Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.

The musical follows her 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.

The way she wrote the soundtrack to a generation, including one of the best-selling albums of all time, Tapestry, and countless classics such as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, Take Good Care Of My Baby and You've Got A Friend.

Daisy Wood-Davis will play Carole King and will be joined by Adam Gillian as King's husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, Laura Baldwin as song-writer Cynthia Weil, Cameron Sharp as songwriter Barry Mann, Susie Fenwick as King's mother Genie Klein
and Oliver Boot as music publisher and producer Donnie Kirshner.

The musical ran on Broadway for nearly six years and is currently selling out in cities across the US throughout its North American tour.

The production will be staged at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustine's Parade, from February 25-29.

Tickets, priced from £13, are available here.
