Synopsis: Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's 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… Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical Carrie hasn't been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winning composer Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winning lyricist Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose). The cast will be led by Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie (Next to Normal, Kiss Me Kate) as Carrie's evangelical mother, Margaret White, and Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County) as the lonely, vengeful, yet fragile girl at the center of it all.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"O.K., everybody, please remember that we’re on our very best behavior tonight. There’ll be no hooting, no teasing, no smart-aleck remarks. We will not — I repeat not — make fun of the girl with the really bad reputation. Lord knows, the poor child has suffered enough already. Is that understood? Good. Now sit down and enjoy the show."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"After what happened to Carrie White the last time she went to the prom, it's a wonder she ever returned. As for those of you in the theater seats, you may wonder why you came at all."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"Back in 1988, Fame composer Michael Gore's musical version of the Stephen King story Carrie became a Broadway legend — for all the wrong reasons. Closing after just five performances, the $8 million production was then Broadway's costliest flop. Not to mention its bloodiest, with gallons of stage plasma poured out each night (an offstage pig squeal during the ''Out for Blood'' number remains a perverse highlight for the handful who saw the original show). "

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"An infamous Broadway flop becomes just another insipid teen-angst musical in this well-intentioned but misguided revision."

TIME OUT NEW YORK REVIEW:

"The term horror musical is more or less synonymous with flop. Aside from the categorically exceptional Sweeney Todd, singing killers inspire more giggles than fear; Broadway is a graveyard for shows that have forced pop ballads from the mouths of mad scientists and vampires. Now the most infamous of all such corpses—the 1988 fiasco Carrie, adapted from Stephen King’s novel about a teenage girl with terrible powers—has been reanimated by director Stafford Arima for MCC Theater. And the most shocking thing about it is how well it works."
