ANY­THING can hap­pen in live the­atre — and au­di­ence mem­bers see­ing Beau­ti­ful, the life story of Ca­role King, got a sur­prise when she ap­peared as her­self to cel­e­brate the show’s fifth an­niver­sary on Broad­way.

The packed house at the Stephen Sond­heim The­atre erupted into thun­der­ous cheers and ap­plause as King ap­peared Sat­ur­day night, sit­ting at a baby grand pi­ano to sing the fi­nal song.

King and the cast then per­formed the show’s en­core num­ber at the cur­tain call as the au­di­ence danced and clapped along.

She has pre­vi­ously sung on­stage dur­ing cur­tain calls but has never ap­peared in the show it­self.

“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,” King told the crowd.
