Nominated for Best Musical and
Jemma McCulloch (Carole King) for Best Female Performance
2020-2021 - Theatre Association of South Australia

…. it is Gauci’s assemblage of the parts that puts a rocket under all this talent.

….Musical director Peter Johns’ large and snappy band is television band-stand material. Choreographer Shenayde Wilkinson-Sarti’s dancers are vibrant and sharp. The whole shebang is pacey and pristine, alternating between intimacy and wild ensemble.

Gauci, McCulloch and co. wear King’s crown gloriously. So many tunes and images are still runnin’ round my head. Bravo!

….Beautiful is quite the triumph.

Gauci has yet another hit on his hands. His commitment and determination serve the community well, and we are lucky to have him.

Davine Productions have a hit on their hands with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

…..To say Jemma McCulloch is brilliant as Carole is an understatement. 

If you were fortunate enough to grab tickets before they sold out for the season, you won’t be disappointed.

There’s a reason the return season of Beautiful: The Carole King Story is sold out; it is pure bliss.

…..This is a long, clever, and completely-absorbing show that rewards the audience with musical treats like Willy Wonker in a happy mood.

… McCulloch is simply sublime in her mastery of not just singing but of conveying King’s reluctance to be in the spotlight juxtaposed against the self-awareness of having a valuable gift.

“Each time I have the fortune to attend a David Gauci/Davine production I leave the theatre wondering if he can (at least) repeat the entertainment quality I’ve just been treated to. And each time he does! ‘Beautiful – the Carole King Musical’ ticks all the boxes in order to be simply sensational.”

Alan Shepley
Theatre Association of South Australia

Overall, this production was highly entertaining, professionally presented and a great night out.
