The musical follows the early, personal, and professional life of songstress Carole King. The titular role is brought to life in London by Cassidy Johnson. Johnson is joined by Matthew Seadon-Young as King’s husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, Stephanie McKeon as song-writer Cynthia Weil, Ian McIntosh as song-writer Barry Mann, Joseph Prouse as music publisher and producer Donnie Kirshner and Barbara Drennan as King’s mother Genie Klein.
The show was a Broadway success before coming to London’s West End and has been visited by Carole King herself on more than one occasion. Tickets to the remaining West End performances are still available and should be booked now to avoid disappointment.
