Beautiful, one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. Great story line about Carol King. I don't thing there's a bad seat in the house. If there are they're aren't many.

The rating is for the theatre and not for the musical. ("Beautiful" was OK -- appreciated it for the story that it told and how well it was presented.) Stephen Sondheim Theatre is a more modern venue than other Broadway theatres that I have been...More

Saw “Beautiful” in this smallish theater off Broadway. We had seats in the 12th row Orchestra (1st floor) and thought they were perfect. Could see and hear everything. Was a little unusual in that you enter the theater on the mezzanine level (3rd floor) and...More

Have an opportunity to get front row seats--wondering if it is worth it? Or better off back from the stage a little?

Front row not necessary and would not even consider unless you are center; you will probably be looking up. If you are to the side, you want to be further back to have a better perspective of the stage; a better angle if... More
