“Beau­ti­ful: The Ca­role King Mu­si­cal” is now play­ing at the Syd­ney Lyric Theatre at The Star. For more in­for­ma­tion on the Broad­way smash-hit mu­si­cal see page 14.

Long be­fore she was Ca­role King, the chart-top­ping mu­sic leg­end, she was an or­di­nary girl with ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent. She sold her first hit, “Will You Love Me To­mor­row”, at just 17. By the time she was 20 she was writ­ing num­ber ones for the big­gest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, in­clud­ing The Drifters, The Shirelles and Aretha Franklin. But it wasn’t un­til her per­sonal life be­gan to crack that she fi­nally man­aged to find her own voice and step into the spot­light, with mu­sic that would be­come the sound­track of a gen­er­a­tion. Star­ring multi award-win­ning Es­ther Han­naford as Ca­role King, Josh Piter­man as Gerry Gof­fin and Amy Leh­pamer as Cyn­thia Weil, this up­lift­ing and in­spi­ra­tional Broad­way hit will have you on your feet in ap­plause.

On­go­ing, Syd­ney Lyric Theatre, The Star, Pir­rama Road, Pyr­mont. 136 100. beau­ti­ful­mu­si­cal.com.au
