Owner description: Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. 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" was incredible!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

We were torn trying to decide which musical to see in NYC. We were so thankful to have been able to get discount tkts so that we were able to see both "Beautiful" and "Jersey Boys." Both were fantastic!! Loved the music & enjoyed learning the back story of her life. We had the opportunity to see the real Carole King a few years ago on her tour with James Taylor.

“A really enjoyable musical”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We wanted to do one of the Broadway shows while we were in New York and as we are both fans of Carole King thought this would be a good choice. First a cautionary note: we bought what I thought were good, top-price seats in row C of the stalls, but when we arrived found that they were on the far right hand-side of the row, which meant we could not see part of the stage. This was not mentioned in the booking process, so we complained at the interval and the theatre staff were able to offer us new seats a few rows further back and more central. The show itself was great. It was terrific to hear all those favourite songs again - all well performed - and Jessie Mueller in the starring role was absolutely superb. It's maybe not one of the all-time Broadway classics, but a great night out nonetheless.

“Oh Carol, we were not the fools!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

So glad we saw this excellently put together show that is just "Beautiful" to see. You'll like it even more if you know and appreciate Carol's music. The lead ( sorry, can't recall name at moment) is great. Definitely worth seeing.

If you like Carole Kings music you will love this show. It brought me back to all the music I grew up with while also telling a story. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and it was a fun night out!
