We frequent Broadway and we're ex tied to see tickets at 50% off on the boards I. Times Square to Beautiful! We were able to get 4 tix in The last 2 rows of Or Hester center which were fabulous seats because the last 2 rows had extr leg rm. this was our first time In The Stephen Sondheim Theater which a lovely theater with full view from our seats, this theater was newer and there is an elevator. The show was amazing telling the life of songwriter/singer Carol King who started her career at the age of 16, married aT 16 and how she endured a Troubled marriage! We were not aware of what an excellent songwriter she was and how she wrote songs for so many artists including the Temptations , Bobby Vinton, etc! It is a must see show and you will not be disappointed!

Not only do I love and greatly admire Carole King and her music, but I had not realized she had a hand in the creation of some of the most famous romantic songs. We were seated in the center orchestra section row G in the middle of the row. The best seats! Not too close or too far. We could see the costumes, sets, and cast faces details perfectly. Totally worth the extra cost. The change in sets as well as costumes were so fast and seamless, like magic! Although not the original cast, the current cast was simply amazing. The theater seemed newer and more spacious than Richard Rodgers theater.

A wonderful show filled with music that we all know the words to. The cast was excellent, the sets were good (and not distracting) and all the voices were perfectly pitched. All in all, a delightful evening of memorable music that I grew up with.
