Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical Carrie tells the infamous tale of a troubled teenage girl whose tortured social life is made more unbearable by her oppressive religious fanatic mother. Before becoming a musical, the novel Carrie was famously adapted for the screen in the 1976 Brian DePalma film of the same name starring Sissy Spacek. Since then, in its various incarnations, it has become an iconic pop culture brand all its own, making the Ghostlight Records release a highly-anticipated event.
The 2012 Off-Broadway production of Carrie was directed by Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz, The Secret Garden), with choreography by Matt Williams, set design by David Zinn, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Tony Award® winner Kevin Adams (Spring Awakening, American Idiot), sound design by Jonathan Deans, projection design by Sven Ortel, fight direction by Rick Sordelet, wig and hair design by Leah J. Loukas. Performances of Carrie began January 31, 2012, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) and officially opened on March 1, 2012. All future performance rights to Carrie are licensed by R&H Theatricals (www.rnh.com).
CARRIE THE MUSICAL features Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and Book by Lawrence D. Cohen, based on Stephen King's novel Carrie.
