Just curious on what kind of merchandise was for sale when Carrie played Broadway in 1988... I know there was the souvenir program, the novel with a different cover and a jacket, but was there anything else? Thanks for your help :)

I should have known there was a windowcard. I have the souvenir program too, it's pretty interesting.

Jackets weren't sold at the theater. They were created privately. Baseball caps (black brim, grey front, red logo) were also made for the company but weren't sold to the public. And in the UK there were promotional buttons.

The original novel was reissued in paperback with the musical's logo on the cover. I have a copy!

I believe that Ken Madelbaum is wearing the T-shirt or sweatshirt in his author's photo for "Not Since Carrie". I remember wondering if he ever wears it out in public, so that I could mug him for it...

I have the UK program and the Broadway one, a window card, 2 badges, the Jacket and the original from the RSC archives of the full Stratford VHS (it was me that released it many years ago, the quality of the ones online etc is much lower than the original video. Also have a copy of the cast script/score from week one of rehearsal
