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 you haven't been to the Carol King musical yet you are really missing something. The story line of Carol Kings early life and music was incredible. The Ed Mirvish theatre is a perfect venue to see a show. The lead actress made you feel you were really seeing Carol King and her voice was incredible.

OK, I realized this would be good but never anticipated that this would be truly outstanding. I guess there's a reason it has such a long run. It is a long play-2 1/2 hours. Yet, you are not aware of its length due to the truly talented performers. Frankly, I didn't know anything about her life nor that she was a phenomenal songwriter before she performed her own work. Not only are you entertained by these gifted actors and singers but come away with a better appreciation for Carol King as a person and a truly unique singer/songwriter.

Went to this show with friends and family on July 27,2017, booked my tickets threw group tickets and they had us spread out in different sections which there were still empty seats that could accommodate all of us for the price we paid. The high school kids that were in the back of us should have HAD THERE OWN PRIVATE SHOW, they KEEP talking threw the whole show and the people that was suppose to be watching them was down in the front of us and did not care that they were not watching them. The show was great other then they rude kids.

It was a fantastic musical. Really good music and all the songs brilliant. The only one negative was the air conditioning!! We where sat on the mezzanine centre EE 101/102 which for viewing were really good, but the air coming up under the seats was freezing, luckily since we visited in December so we were, well wrapped up, but I had to wrap my coat around my legs to keep warm! Other than that a fantastic show.
