Nyack To Broadway To See BEAUTIFUL The Musical

It was 17º this past Friday night and the last thing I wanted to do was get in my car and drive into Manhattan. 40 minutes later I was walking into the Stephen Sondheim Theater and taking my seat for the play, Beautiful; The Carol King Musical. The lead, Jessie Mueller, was played  instead by Rebecca LaChance that evening. From what I’m told, it was only Ms. LaChance’s second performance in the lead...the first being San Francisco. Could this even be possible? Once the curtain went up, she transitioned seamlessly from one scene to the next with a  voice that resonated throughout the theater and beyond. Her longtime friend and song writer, Cynthia Weil, played by Anika Larsen, was just as brilliant and captivating. 

I’ll admit, I wasn’t really aware of Carole King’s breadth until now. Getting a glimpse into her life was as unexpected as it was unpredictable and with a cast that truly seemed to understand her music and her life without missing a beat.
