From my journal: Thursday June 27th, 2019 The Carole King Musical Starring Vanessa Carlton Low and behold~ My girl has done it again… Tonight I attended her opening night here in New York City as Carole King. In January she and I went to see “Beautiful” to see if she wanted to try her hand at being a Broadway actress. She decided to do it and I decided she was very brave to dive into such a huge project since we are just rock and roll women. Well, I must say, I have never been so wrong. She blew my mind tonight. She WAS Carole King~ she’s a great actress~ her compassion for the part she was playing~ it was her honor to play Carole~ and I think Carole King will be very proud of my brilliant little friend of 15 years~ for throwing her heart and her soul into telling this story. I cried from the moment I got to the theatre~ until it was all over. She didn’t know I was there until I walked into her dressing room after the show. She forbid me to come actually~ and I was in Europe finishing the FM tour~ so she freaked out and so did I. Never, (except when her baby was born) have I been so proud and so happy for her. Tomorrow I leave for LA to rest for the Australian tour~ and tomorrow~ she begins a new chapter as a shooting star~ a new little star on Broadway~ someone who can bring some joy into this crazy world… I want you all to see it if you can. It will change your state of mind, heal your heart~ and bring Carole’s beautiful, beautiful songs back to life. So, good luck my sweet girl~ I can leave New York now knowing that ~ all is well~ Love, Stevie
