Based on the Novel by Stephen King, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and music by Michael Gore, this revamped, contemporary version of the famous (and infamous) 1988 production, “Carrie: The Musical” follows a young woman with telekinetic powers. An outcast at school and bullied viciously for her differences, Carrie is also lost at home, with a fervently religious mother whose love traps her in its jaws. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class’s most vicious bully, has other ideas. Pushed to the brink, Carrie’s powers threaten to overwhelm her, and devour everyone around her in flame.
“Carrie: The Musical” is known as one of, or THE biggest, Broadway Musical Flop in history. The show officially opened on May 12, 1988 and was hit with mostly negative reviews. Despite the fact that the show was selling out every single night, the financial backers pulled their money out of the show, and it closed on May 15, 1988 after only 16 previews and 5 performances. Today, productions are opening everywhere – regionally and prefessionally.
