What an amazing show! A really must go experience for anyone who loves Carole King, musicals or just enjoying the experience of a really top show. The cast were excellent, the music fabulous - whoever knew that this great singer-songwriter penned all these hit tunes from the age of just 16. As for the star of the show - words are just not enough. See it and wonder! I would go again in a heartbeat and so would all my friends who have seen it.

Carole King helped me through my difficult late teen years, I played Tapestry over and over and identified with the words of her songs. Show was incredible, loved it from start to finish! I'd love to go again. Absolutely fantastic show!

4.5 star rating Diane Samuels from London, UK


As far as juke box musicals and bio dramas go Beautiful is at the quality end of the genres. The pace is snappy but allows room for feelings, the a company work slickly together without making the show seem hollow and Katie Brayben manages to channel Carole King touchingly as she makes her way from sixteen year old virgin wannabe songwriter to divorced single mom and world-clas solo artist. And every song is a winner - boy did Carole write some brilliant tunes.

4.5 star rating Chris Thorn from London,


Such wonderful songs and a good story of Carole King's life . The show is full of great music that we all love and remember , all well performed by an enthusiastic cast . As well as those delicious Goffin / King songs , that we all remember , there is the added bonus of the Mann / Weil songs and the friendship and rivalry between the 2 songwriting teams . Quite simply Beautiful is a fun show , with a good story linked by wonderful music - well worth seeing .
