From the moment the show starts and until the end, you are amazed by it. The music is so enjoyable and the acting is first rate. We grew up hearing all the songs and had no idea of the story behind the scene until now. If you want a great theater experience , don't miss this show. It is definitely Tony award worthy.

Loved it!! I was here visiting from Los Angeles. I have always loved Carole King and seeing this show, gave me so much insight into her life and career. It has tremendous heart and the story is interesting...and the songs!!! The actress playing Carole, Jessie Mueller, was wonderful. She looks and songs just like her. You can't help but love her. All the performances were great. I didn't look at my watch once and it was over 2 hours long. The place was packed. If you want a feel good show and you enjoy hearing songs from the 70s, 80's this show is for you. I predict big hit and Tony noms.

What more could you ask for in a musical. Great!

Saw this show in pre- Broadway run while on vacation in San Francisco. It was the highlight of the trip. Jesse Mueller was amazing - she does Carole King with a twist that enhances the songs - believe it! The remaining cast members ranged from very good to extraordinary. Our group included ages 40-72, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Can't wait to see it again in NYC and get the soundtrack.

Not to be missed

5.0 star rating Visitor to NYC from Penna.


On Dec. 27, I attended the musical. It was great. Very entertaining. I graduated from High School in 1969 and college in 1973. The music was MY music. I was wishing the audiance would join in more but that was the only negative. My son and his girl friend were with us and they are in their early 30's. They really enjoyed it also. Great actors and singers. I would suggest it for anyone. Clean theatre and large clean bathrooms also. Easy to get to. Do the on line parking for discounts .

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 surpr
