BWW Review: BEAUTIFUL's Emotional Musical Journey is One of Dr. Phillips Center's BestBWW Review: BEAUTIFUL's Emotional Musical Journey is One of Dr. Phillips Center's Best
by Matt Tamanini - May 5, 2016

However, the musical, playing through Sunday, May 8th, will almost certainly appeal to music (and musical) lovers of all ages. In fact, the timeless tunes, inventive staging, and dynamite performances make BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL one of the most universally appealing shows in the Dr. Phillips Center's brief year and a half history.
