Beautiful -

The Carole King Musical in re:View
At the Academy of Music through January 20, 2019
By Debbi Calton, Radio Announcer at WMGK Greater Media Philadelphia.
As the exuberant cast belted out and
shimmied to "I Feel the Earth Move" after
final bows, my friend Tracy Price sighed,
"I do not want it to end," echoing the
sentiment of all in attendance.
BEAUTIFUL - THE
CAROLE KING MUSICAL is a
romp through an era of infectious
pop songs, written for others to
sing, that leads up to a liberating
self discovery: Carole is the only
one who can truly do justice to her
new batch of songs. That personal
batch of songs becomes the award
winning album TAPESTRY. The
show ends up with her triumphant
performance at Carnegie Hall as a
solo artist. It is a moment in time
she could have never imagined as
a 16-year-old aspiring songwriter
who just wanted her songs to be
heard on the radio.
BEAUTIFUL is a fabulous period piece that presents a slice
of the 50's barreling into the 60's with a peek into the early
70's. The hairdo, set and wardrobe changes subtly shift to place

the scenes in time
and the set itself, a
remarkable sliding
and gliding affair.
Speaking of
affairs, as much as
the storyline is about
song making, it is
also about Carole's
relationship with her husband and songwriting partner Gerry
Goffin whose dalliances would ultimately tear apart the marriage
and team. It is a tale of pluck and perseverance, determination,
self-realization and of course, talent. It is also an open door into
the Brill Building school of songwriters with Don Kirshner in a
crucial role and particularly, a look at the friendly rivalry between
King/Goffin and the duo of Barry Mann and Cythia Weil.
The vocal performances from the entire cast are solidly
superb, as is the dancing. The storyline brings plenty of
humorous as well as reflective and YOU GO GIRL! Moments.
And truly, you cannot separate Sarah Bockel from her character
from the first moment she sits down at the piano bench.
Ultimately, the songs are the stars. Again with my friend Tracy
who kept murmuring "she wrote THAT?" This show will have
you singing and dancing your way out of the theatre. *
