Beautiful: The Carole King Musical Reviews
Rudder from Fort Worth, Texas
Having grown up with this wonderful music, it was a fascinating experience to relive the times. Wonderful cast and production crew really take you back. We enjoyed meeting friends before the show at Bird Cafe just across from the Hall. Go! Enjoy!

BEAUTIFUL, A DEFINITE MUST SEE!
Saw this yesterday at the Fisher Theatre with my 22 year old daughter. She enjoyed it as much as I did and was surprised by how much of the music she recognized. She even commented that she would love to see it again and put it to the top of her list of favourites.

YOU WON'T BE HAPPY SEEING IT JUST ONCE!
We saw this last year in NYC (husband and I along with 27 yo son). I did much research before choosing Beautiful. The reviews were all 5*. People who saw multiple plays during their nyc visit loved this best. Her story is fascinating and the songs/music are fabulous. Hadn't realized that she and her husband wrote many songs sung by Motown bands, etc., and loved that these groups were part of the play. At one point I became so enthusiastic I wanted to start clapping to the music! I loved it so much I was tempted to go back to New York just to see it again - so glad it's coming to the Burgh!

I remember Carole King's Tapestry album from my high-school days. It isthe soundtrack to many of my memories of the time. I had no idea though of the prolific talent of Carole King - writing songs for the Shirelles, Bobby Vee, Aretha Franklin and others BEFORE embarking on her own career as a performer. The show cleverly weaves her emergence as a writer and, later, as a performer with exceptional engagement across changing tastes in music and her own growth and challenges with a difficult marriage. At times I laughed, at times I had tears in my eyes but I enjoyed this show like no other. It was Beautiful!!

Flawless inspiring REMARKABLE
What a remarkable, NATURAL WOMAN! Totally inspiring.
In 2018, we are not surprised by the teenyboppers moving through the music industry at a rapid rate producing hit songs, and then disappearing from the limelight almost as quickly as they shot to fame. However, in the late 1950s, it was certainly a surprRead full review
