What a show!. It is brilliant. Wonderful singing, acting and well organised scene changes.

If you don't come away from the theatre in an ecstatic mood, I don't know what to say.

Fantastic show - even if you're young and don't know the 'era' it's still a great, true story, good casting/acting, brilliant music. truly uplifting.

Went to the evening show on 20th February with my wife. We both thoroughly enjoyed the show despite being 'up in the gods' at the back of the circle (which may be a problem for people with vertigo!) The storyline was focused, unfussy and to the point and the acting top quality with special kudos to the leading lady. A measured mix of drama, music and dance with a smattering of comedy for good measure. Held my interest from start to finish and exceeded my expectations. I don't really think it matters if people are not familiar with Carole King or her work because I am sure anyone attending would be surprised at the scale of her song writing credits (with Gerry Goffin) for other artists well known hit records from 'way back when'. I have been to a number of musicals based on artists/bands careers and would say that this comes out very favourably so would recommend wholeheartedly.

What an evening to hear so many of the songs CK wrote. Joanna Woodward was outstanding as CK and brought tears to my eyes during 'You've got a friend' and 'A Natural Woman'. What emotion!. Our party ranged from 20s to 60s and all left the show wanting to see it again. The pace was good throughout and the orchestrations were excellent. 'Up there with the best' was voiced by all our group of twenty. Highly recommended.

Nothing less than top marks for this superb portrayal of a great singer & song writers from the 60's & 70's.. my record collection is full of songs written by these fabulous artists.. You will be surprised...
