From the producers of the West End hit shows Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of The Dubliners and Fairytale of New York – Coming Home For Christmas, Carole – The Music of Carole King is coming to a theatre near you in Autumn 2022.
Celebrating the 80th birthday of one of the world’s most prolific songwriters, we take a step back in time through the music that defined an era.
Carole – The Music of Carole King takes you on a musical journey from her early beginnings in New York in that hotbed of creativity that was the Brill Building to life in LA, The Troubadour Club and the singer-songwriter movement of early 70’s California.
Carole features not only songs from the Carole King songbook but also hits written and recorded by some of the greatest artists and songwriting partnerships such as Aretha Franklin, The Drifters, The Shirelles, The Monkees, The Beatles, The Everly Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Little Eva, Herman’s Hermits and James Taylor.
Co-producer Ged Graham says:
“Carole King is one of the most influential songwriters in pop music history. Her music has rocked the world for so long and all the songs have been laced into the fabric of life for over 60 years. This production is a showcase of not only her music but just how much she has been a force that has shaped pop music.”
With a cast of the UK’s finest musicians, singers and dancers covering over six decades of iconic music, Carole is a show for all the family and promises to have you on your feet and dancing in the aisles!
