I saw Beautiful in London several months ago, so I was ready to see it again when in NYC. It is a jukebox musical. They took the music of Carol King and told her story around it. You will be amazed when you learn about the songs that she wrote. When the actors started coming on stage at the end, the audience gave everyone a standing ovation. The cast, story line, music, and everything are just outstanding. I am ready to go back! Still humming the songs.

Highly recommend this tribute to Carole King's life and songwriting! Super talented cast tell the story of Carole breaking into the male-dominated music industry as a teenager. Such fun singing along to the mega hits from the iconic LP 'Tapestry'!

Was visiting a friend in New York and we got tickets to this show. Our tickets weren't grat but it didn't matter, I don't think there is a bad seat in the house! Performances were amazing, especially Abby Mueller as Carol King. I knew she had written a lot of great songs but didn't realize how many! Amazing show!

This musical gives solid backbone to the beautiful music composed by Carole King together with Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. It's a story of how music could be a companion in times of Joy and Laughter, Grief and Sorrow. The lines delivered were so funny that you'll run out of air. If you have enjoyed singing "You've Got a Friend" or "You Make Me Feel like a Natural Women", then this musical is for you.

My mom picked this musical and I was not sure who Carol King was. Once the musical started I recognized everything. Had no idea they were the writers for so many hit songs! Abby Mueller has a great voice and is very talented! Definitely would recommend!
