Did you feel the Earth move from under your feet? That’s probably because the West End’s latest hit Beautiful – The Carole King Musical has now officially opened in London.

Opening night featured a massive surprise – especially for leading lady Katie Brayben! Unbeknownst to the company, the legend herself Carole King was in the audience, watching the musical of her life play out on stage. After the show’s rousing finale, Carole took to the stage with the cast, delivered an emotional curtain call speech and even treated the audience to an impromptu performance.
