"A sharp show with catchy tunes that is grounded in a realistic portrayal of high-school angst."
The Pioneer Press says "you can't take your eyes off [Jill] Iverson's mysterious yet instantly recognizable Carrie."
"This 'reimagined' show...is a hit."
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, Carrie The Musical tells the tale of Carrie White, a misfit bullied at school by the popular crowd and at the mercy of her loving, but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it.
The show originally opened on Broadway in 1988 and the authors have joined with director Stafford Arima and Manhattan Class Company to produce this newly reworked and gripping version. Time Magazine says, "The show has guts. This score does what a musical score should do: it moves the show along, illuminates the characters and deepens the emotions. Carrie The Musical has real weight and emotional conviction."
Set today in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, it features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic 1976 film directed by Brian DePalma and starring Sissy Spacek), music by Academy Award-winner Michael Gore (“Fame,” Terms of Endearment”) and lyrics by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford (“Fame,” Footloose.”)
