Carrie's Off Broadway Cast will head to the studio April 16 to document their production. Look for news very soon!

It's important to have proper documentation.

Perhaps because of Evita's recent opening, I just picture an embalming right now from this thread title.

I enjoyed this Carrie much more than most, so a cast recording makes me a very happy pickle eater!

Besides, who hasn't dreamed of looking at their cast albums and seeing an official Carrie recording in the mix? It'd go between Carousel and Catch Me If You Can. Not that I've thought about it...

Is this official? There's no link.


I'd be happy with a recording to be sure, but nothing will ever replace the original cast recording (I mean we all have it, and it is the original cast and it is a recording.....) for me.

Please tell us the source; I'd love to know that this is true.

I'd be excited if this is definitely happening as well.

Still think Linzi Hateley sounded way better than Molly Ranson, but atleast Linzi recorded the title song officially.

I wonder if they will add to the orchestra or add any bonus cut songs ("I'm Not Alone"!).

If this is true I hope Marin sings "Eve Was Weak" like she did tonight, WOW! I really wish she would have brought the crazy like tonight from the beginning. She was always good, but she really stepped it up for the final tonight.

It's to be a double-CD, with Yank!, with Marin singing Bobby Steggart's role.

Marin is way too butch for Bobby's role.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

New York Times article says there's nothing official about a cast recording, but a regional production at SpeakEasy Stage Company in Boston for next spring is in the works.

Someone on ATC claims that they sat next to someone's Dad in the audience, who said they were recording a cast recording in two weeks.

So Kerry Dowling or Paula Plum as Margaret at Speakeasy, and Michaela Donovan as Carrie, I bet.

Call me crazy, but I don't think the fact that this is going to be licensed in any way proves to the creators or anybody else that Carrie is a workable show. Also, I don't think critics have the power to inhibit ticket sales nowadays, in the world of social media. It was the voices of paying audience members that stifled the ticket sales.

But, I'd hate to shatter anybody's illusions that everything isn't as sparkly and gorgeous and dreamlike as Carrie's vision of the prom right before a dry bucket of no blood was spilled all over her princess dress.

I am thrilled that this is getting regional life - I look forward to seeing more productions of this show, then again I have been advocating for it from the start and loved the revival. I guess it's pretty obvious this is gonna get a recording, then.

It's definitely 100% a possibility.

Please give them a cast recording.

Maybe that will stop the madness.
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry
