***** Highly Recommended ***** Broadway in Chicago’s newest hit, “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical”, is dazzling Chicago audiences. “Beautiful” makes my list of the top five musicals of the year. In fact, I think it is the best jukebox musical I’ve ever seen. Hurry and get your tickets, they’ll be going fast for this must-see musical. I give “Beautiful” 4 BIG Spotlights.
“Beautiful” runs through February 21st at the Oriental Theatre, 24 W. Randolph, Chicago. Performances are Tuesdays through Fridays at 7:30 pm; Saturdays at 2:00 and 8:00; Sundays at 2:00 with additional performances on select dates. Some dates/times might change due to the holiday schedule. Running time is two hours, 30 minutes with an intermission. Tickets range from $30-$140.
