On October 27th, 2019, the Broadway production of BEAUTIFUL  ended its smash-hit, record-breaking run after almost six years. By the final bow, it played 60 previews and almost 2,500 regular performances, surpassing the original production of Annie and the landmark 1998 revival of Cabaret to become the 27th longest-running musical and also the second longest-running bio-musical in Broadway history. How cool is that?

On Broadway, the show was seen by almost 2.2 million audience members, including,  King herself. It's now the longest-running and highest-grossing show in the history of the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

BEAUTIFUL will be here on February 8th and 9th, 2022. Tickets start at $40 each and can be found on their website or by calling 1-800-514-3849. Group ticket savings for 10+ are available by contacting Groups@ATGuild.org.
