Seriously guys, go see this.
Beautiful The Carole King Musical is some kind of wonderful — heartrending, joyful, laugh out loud and tender.
Carole King is one of my heroes; my mom constantly blasted Tapestry in our home growing up.
I didn’t think it was possible, but I love her more. Her story of strength is inspiring. Beautiful follows a teenage Carole Klein excited to share her music, writing songs for others and while her personal life was falling down, she found her own voice and shared it with the world.
It’s profound. And a great reminder to smile and be kind.
Not only do you get Carole King, you also hear The Drifters, The Shirelles, The Righteous Brothers and Little Eva (who was Carole and Gerry’s babysitter!) and the awesome tunes by Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann.
PLUS the actors’ portrayals and voices were on point! Abby Mueller did a fantastic job playing Carole.
If you are a fan of Jersey Boys, you will love this!
