You'll be singing for days afterwards ... by Liz

I loved this show. I never realised just how many songs Carole King had written ... you'll be singing them for days afterwards. Also, she was a ground breaking woman in a man's world ... you go Carole! You really wanted the best for her by the end!

Must See! by Kevin

Loved the music and it was a feel good show with lots of humour

A must see by Pamela

Loved this show from the opening song and didn't want it to end! So fast paced and the brilliant set changing just made it amazing to watch. Would recommend this feel good show to anyone but if you like the music of Carole King you are in for a treat.

No sing along at the end by Julie

Enjoyed the show , missed a sing along at the end to get you leaving on a high

A definite must see by Sandra

This is the second time I have seen it and I could see it again. I was brought up with this music in the 60's and I just love it, but this would appeal to anyone who likes good music.

Great story and great songs A must see! by Caroline

Great show and acting and music were fab! I never realized how much I loved Carol King's music.

wonderful by Linda

The show was a great way of catching up with all those fantastic songs carol king wrote and the added extra of carol king coming on stage herself made it even more wonderful

by Ian

A great show

Truly Fabulous by Andrew

Really uplifting fun from start to finish. If you're of a certain age you'll know and love all the songs, if you're a youngster you can't help but love all the songs. Whatever your mood before the show you can only leave the Theatre feeling good.

Magical matinee by Carol

Tapestry was the first album I was bought many years ago. The music brought back so many wonderful memories, and would not hesitate to recommend the show to anyone.

Beautiful in every sense by linda

Tapestry was the first album my, then boyfriend, now husband bought me back in 1971 and I have loved Carole King ever since. This show highlighted all her outstanding qualities as a singer/songwriter.

Beginnings of career by Susan

Show was extremely uplifting, enjoyable music and actors outstanding drifters and everley brothers brilliant carols story had all the elements that go to make you want to hear and learn more about her life and career amazing to find out about the vast amount of hits she co wrote and then wrote after her divorce.

Fantastic by Lesley

Brilliantly enjoyableA by Williams

A really good feeling to the show.A great story well acted and sung.We left the theatre singing.Will highly recommend .

by James

As someone old enough to remember most of Carol's hits when they first came out I thought some of the Shirelles' and Drifters' songs could have been closer to the originals in the performance. That being said the actor who played Carol was superb and her supporting actors were brilliant. Anyone thinking of going to see the show don't go expecting to see much of Carol's performances at the Troubadour with James Taylor or other later collaborators like Elton John as the show features most of her early career and personal relationships.

Fantastic Beautiful by Anne

A well acted show with amazing music never a slow moment.

A must see by Stuart

Fantastic show. Great true life story. Brilliant songs from a very talented lady.

A revelation! by Judy

Knew quite a few Carole King songs before seeing the show, but had no idea she had written so many. An excellent show - great singing and an interesting story of her life with Gerry Goffin and what happened after.

by Leonard

Fantastic by Robert


Touches all emotions - classic musical! by Shirley

Loved every aspect of it except the singing is clearly by trained theatrical singers and in some of the numbers I would have really liked to hear more of that raw, untrained authenticity that is Carol King.

Must see!!!! by harlie

Incredible actors and actresses, the singing was out of this world! Being a professional myself it was just outstanding! Suitable for anyone! Standing ovation :)

The show was brilliant and the leading lady was so talented. There were four people in my group and we all agreed it was one of the best shows we had seen

Best night out for months! I didn't stop smiling and bouncing around for the whole performance! Just what a good West End Theatre night should be.

Best show in London by Sandy

Get tickets early. Show is a sell-out

Great evening! by Julie

Took our Mum to see Beautiful as Mothers Day gift- we all loved it! Although minimal set, the story and music were mesmerising - and the performances of those covering the songs seemed very true to the original artists, evoking memories of the 60's and 70's to full effect!! Although some sadness in storyline it was a fab feelgood musical!! Want to see again!!
