Every day is opening night.

Beautiful Words

When audiences come to Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, they expect to hear iconic songs, see great performances, and experience the tour de force that is Jessie Mueller. They never, in a million years, expect to see Carole King in the flesh. Well, Thursday night, audiences practically felt the earth move under their feet when – at the end of the show –the legend herself walked on stage to surprise the entire cast. “They had no idea!” King exclaimed as she embraced a crying Mueller. After raising a whopping $30,000 for Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights Aids, the entire house burst out in song – King’s classic “You’ve Got a Friend”. As we see in this Photo of the Week, Carole “couldn’t be more proud.” All of us at O & M Co. feel the same.
