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 of 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 winner Michael Gore (Fame,  Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame,  Footloose).


REVIEWS:

"A downtown hit! This former joke of a musical now feels like a bonanza. The emotional core comes from the bond between Carrie and the religious fanatic of a mother who needs to keep her close."

Linda Winer Newsday

"A madly feverish musical!"

Michael Sommers NJ Newsroom

“Welcome to the prom, Carrie. They’re not going to laugh at you now! Powerfully acted and intensely well sung, this infamous rock musical about a telekinetic teen has the strange power to move you. The new and improved Carrie is gripping."

Adam Feldman Time Out New York

“A hit before it even opened!"

Ben Brantley The New York Times

"Thankfully, Carrie has returned for her encore - and they finally did "get it right." With the sure hand of director Stafford Arima, the original creative team has revised the entire production; keeping everything that was great about the original musical and completely reworking everything else."

Bradley Steele Harding FearNet

“The show has guts. Carrie’s score does what a musical score should do: it moves the show along, illuminates the characters and deepens the emotions...  Carrie has real weight and emotional conviction.”
