In London theatre, Musicals, Opinion, Other Recent Articles, Reviews by John ChapmanLeave a Comment

Voted back into power three times, Tony Blair left office with the accusations of being a manipulative liar ringing in his ears – not that that has ever slowed down the current incumbent.

BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL – West End

In London theatre, Musicals, Reviews by Caroline Hanks-FarmerLeave a Comment

This review wasn’t going to be written. Why? Well as this was a revisit to a show which I’d previously seen earlier in its run, I thought I’d just sit back and enjoy. However it soon struck me that I was witnessing some really career defining performances. Having been extremely successful on Broadway, Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom.

Along the way, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
