I will keep it simple and short. Beautiful is terrifically done. The cast, music, choreography, direction, etc were all so well done that we felt like we were part of the show. I could and would watch this show every day. I was speechless after the first musical number and at intermission we looked at each other with wide eyes and said "Wow, this is amazing." Neither pf us wanted the show to end. We were Orchestra Row Q Center Stage and I cannot imagine there being abetter spot in the theatre.

Let's deal with the story first- it is the story of how Carole King became Carole King. The story is fascinating and you can't help but root for her. You will like the story. What you will love is the music, especially if you grew up listening to it and singing along. Her album "Tapestry" was #1 for 15 weeks, and stayed on the Billboard list of top albums for 313 (!) weeks. If you are not a fan when you walk in, you will be one by the time you leave.

My husband and I were in NYC for the weekend with no set plans. Several friends had recommended this show. I didn't realize Carole King had written so many songs. We are in our late forties/early fifties and really enjoyed it but I would love to take my 71 year young mother to see this show since she grew up with that music. I would have to try to keep her from singing along...LOL! The show, acting, sets, and singing were all great as others have mentioned so I will focus this review on the theater and getting tickets. We were able to score nice seats at 40% off through the TKTS booth in Times Square for the 2PM Sunday 3/19 show. Our seats were in the mezzanine on the left side of the stage, row DD in the middle. I was able to skip the TKTS line since I had purchased from them the day before (if you present a receipt/ticket purchased within the 7 days prior (I believe it is 7 days) you can skip the line for later TKTS booth purchases. I had looked to buy tickets online beforehand through Broadway.com and none were showing available so I was really surprised to be able to see them at the TKTS booth when I arrived. The guy at the booth also mentioned they were going to have tickets available for the evening Sunday show. I had also checked StubHub and the ticket prices there were three times what we paid! FYI - When we checked the TKTS booth for the Sat 3/18 matinee, they did not have any discounted seats for this show. The Stephen Sondheim theater was not as ornate on the inside (more contemporary) as some of the other theaters but the seating was nice and comfortable and the ladies room situation was much better and less wait time than the other theaters where we've seen shows. The theater looks very small and modest from the outside but it was much larger on the inside. I didn't check out the orchestra section but I think just about any seat in the mezzanine would give you a fine view. Honestly, we had second row side orchestra seats for the Phantom the day before and I much preferred these mezzanine seats. Highly recommend this show!
