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!

A fantastic show, the talent demonstrated by the young and enthusiastic cast is just amazing. The best show ever. Can’t wait to see it again.

5.0 star rating Ms Slade from Brighton,


Thoroughly enjoyed this show. I haven't been to the theatre for years and we had so much fun. Fantastic performances with good humour and great music. The whole audience had a great time, worth every penny.

5.0 star rating Chas C from Crawley


Amazing show by amazing multi-tasking cast. Molly-Grace Cutler who played Carole King was incredible, I would recommend Beautiful to any age group as Carole King's songwriting is second to none. Our seats in the stalls gave us a perfect view which topped off a brilliant matinee performance. Afterwards we dined at Burnt Orange which is a 10 minute walk away through the Lanes which I would strongly recommend.

My friend booked this and I'm so glad she did, it was amazing, you can't help but sing along, it was a great production and well worth booking!

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.
