Description

from Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
Before she was Carole King, superstar—she was Carol Klein, teenage songwriter. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom from being part of a chart-topping songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music. She wrote the soundtrack to a generation.



This show is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (1 intermission). Appropriate for all ages.

"If I could give Beautiful a higher rating, I would. "

This is what Broadway is all about. From start to finish, this show was a delight. It was FUNNY, and you could hear and understand the dialogue—that doesn’t always happen! The story was interesting and heartwarming. But it’s all about the music, of course. The cast was GREAT, and brought the characters to life—and recreated an era that was defined by the music of Carole King and her contemporaries. If you get the chance to see Beautiful, grab it because you will be humming and smiling for a long time.

The story line about Carole King's life is both so sad and at the same time uplifting. The music, of course, is superb. The actors do a fantastic job. My husband isn't always as enthusiastic as I am about going to a Broadway show, but this one he raves about.

The iconic songs of Carol King have been a part of my entire adult life. This musical charts out the path Carol and others took to bring this discography to fruition. This is a fine musical with great songs and awakening memories. Both the performers and production were world class as you would expect to see on Broadway. The Stephen Sondheim Theatre is a grand venue for this big show. A must see!

"Even Better The Second Time"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 08, 2017 NEW
This is the second time we've seen this play - the first was right after it opened. It is even better. The songs and music is part of the American Pjaybook of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Nd the script moves you through making you feel like you are a fly on the walk of Carol King's life. And the Steven Soundheim Theatre is a great venue - modern, spacious (for Broadway) and even sitting in the middle of the balcony, the stage is clear. This is a big deal as we are both short and sometimes struggle to see the stage because tall people are in from of us blocking our view.
