Beautiful: The Carole King Musical Starts Rehearsals

The Australian cast of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical commenced rehearsals this week, ahead of the show’s premiere in Sydney next month.

With only 4 weeks until the Broadway sensation opens at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre, Sydney residents will be feeling the earth move under their feet as the cast prepare to tell the story of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s journey from school girl to superstar; featuring countless classics such as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, I Feel The Earth Move, Take Good Care of My Baby, You’ve Got a Friend, So Far Away, One Fine Day, It’s Too Late, Tapestry and Locomotion.

On the third day of rehearsals, The Daily Review dropped by to speak with the multi award-winning Esther Hannaford, who stars as Carole King, and director Marc Bruni, who is recreating his Broadway production for local audiences.

We thought this would be a BEAUTIFUL opportunity to share the video, and give you a first look at our Australian cast and production!
