Carole King made a surprise appearance at the fifth anniversary performance of Beautiful, the Broadway musical.
After the show, King spoke to the audience … “What a night! It was amazing to be a part of this. This musical has been such a magical experience. To be here and celebrate our fifth anniversary with so much joy and love is amazing,” she said.
Carole King told the Associated Press, “It’s kind of miraculous that this show has lasted for five years because not many do. And it’s a testament to, I think, people say the music … but the book is so good and the direction and the lighting and the sets. It’s really a well put together production.”
“Everyone connected with this show will agree that the people we have to thank the most are you, the audiences; please give yourselves a hand. It’s thanks to you, you who have come once … twice, three times. I hear from people who’ve brought friends, family and shared the joy and shared the love, and it’s amazing. So if you keep doing that, you never know when I might show up again.”
