My husband and I saw Beautiful here in June. I had already seen the show, but my husband hadn't. We booked months in advance as I was desperate to see the leading lady, Chilina Kennedy. Unfortunately booking so far in advance didn't pay off as...More

There was quite a bit of history that I learned whilst watching this show. I didn’t realise Carol King had wrote and produced so many hit songs. The actors are very professional and have amazing voices. There voices totally tugged at a few emotions inside...More

Right smack in the Theater District. We scored Sunday Matinee tikcets and watched the entry line move quickly. As one enters - the staff smoothly peeks in purses/backpacks and ushers to your seats. The Carole King Musical, Beautiful was amazing. Standing ovation good.
