Commentaires : Tracing the career of Carole King, and endorsed by the beloved Grammy winner herself, Beautiful was the feel good hit of 2014 and continues to wow audiences nightly.

Since its Broadway debut, the production has garnered a host of Tony and Drama Desk Awards, as well as the 2015 Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album, and it's no wonder the bio-musical has been a hit with audiences too
Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"Friendly, formulaic bio-musical." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Too bad a great musical isn’t only about the music. The book is crucial, too — and this show’s connect-the-dots story line is so simplistic that the extravagantly talented King’s life emerges as a mundane version of the long-suffering little woman." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"The book is often heavy-handed, and Marc Bruni’s production only occasionally resurrects the bubbly verve and energy of those glorious songs." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"If you go to "Beautiful" for the songs, you'll probably have a great time. Just don't expect anything more." Robert Feldberg for The Record

"Fans will find "Beautiful" some kind of wonderful show." Toma Torre for NY1

"Serves up a tasty slice of Baby Boomer heaven." Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"This is entertaining boomer bait that elevates its by-the-numbers narrative with great songs.." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Whenever this bio-musical stumbles over Douglas McGrath’s flat-footed book, helmer Marc Bruni rushes to the rescue with some snazzy piece of stagecraft for the sleek production numbers." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
