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.

WONDERFUL NIGHT AT THE THEATRE
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.

SAN FRANCISCO PREVIEW
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
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 .

A wonderful theatre experience suitable for teenagers and up. Acting by all was superb! I would see it again in a minute! Sets and costumes were visually captivating & story line was interesting. A surefire hit whether you grew up with the music or not.

AMAZING LEAD ACTRESS, GREAT MUSIC AND A FANTASTIC STORY
You really feel like Carole King is your personal friend and she is telling the story just to you. The history of music and the song writers including Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann was refreshing. A true look at Americana!! My entire family ranting from age 13-68 enjoyed it! This is for sure a Tony Award winner!

Amazing. Truly touched my heart. A heartwarming story. Incredible music. Terrific acting. This is everything Broadway should be. A must see!!

Run, don't walk to this incredible performance of Beautiful. Jessie Mueller is simply amazing as Carole King. She is believable in every way from her singing, piano abilities as well as emoting the drama that consumed her life in so many ways. This tells a story many people are not aware of...that in the 50's and early 60's most singers never wrote their own songs and were dependent on talented writers and lyricists. The entire cast is fantastic...there is not a weak link to be found. It is not often that I would spend the money to see the same musical again...but this one I would see again, no questions asked.

CAROLE KING MUSICAL - A ' KNOCKOUT!'
Visiting fron New Zealand, we took the opportunity to catch the Carole King Musical on Broadway and 'wow' are we pleased we did. It is an absolutely brilliant production in all respects. From the on- stage performers and cast, to the live orchestra it was nothing short of impeccable. Compliments must also go to the show's Sound Engineer for the great sound mix. Overall, I couldn't recommend this show highly enough... Definitely a must see!!

Ms. Kennedy as Carole King was magical. She lit up the stage. If you have the chance to see it don't miss it. I love, love, loved it. I went to the afternoon show and if time would have allowed I would have been back for the evening show.

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
