Jessie Mueller, Jake Epstein, Jarrod Spector, Anika Larsen and the ensemble of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical are just killing it over at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. The music of a generation just comes alive and leaves audiences on a high that lasts long after the big, earth-moving finale. Now, you can take a bit of that Beautiful magic home with you thanks to a new cast recording released by Sh-K-Boom records. Below, BroadwayBox dives into the new album and reacts to each song in animated GIF (spoiler alert: we couldn’t stop dancing!).
