A bit of a shameless plug as I'm in some way connected to the production. But I think its going to be a pretty exciting staging...

Does the high school prank really go horribly wrong? Or horribly right?

Congrats MB! Looking forward to hearing all about it!

Also, didn't I read somewhere that it was having its first high school production soon?
....but the world goes 'round

Congrats, MB!
I'd love nothing more than to see this production. Can't wait to hear some casting news.

Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

This is AWESOME! I wish i could get out there to see it. I wonder if there are plans to bring it to NY (Broadway) if it does well?

All together now: "CARRIE would totally work as a musical if only _________ had done ______________ to the production."
"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

If it's truly "a new audience immersive production", I might show up late (after the show sequence) and leave early.

Excuse me but I'm totally blind sighted by this message board. Are we talking about a revival of the original Carrie from Broadway or are we talking about the off-Broadway revival coming to LA? Please fill in this number #1 Carrie Fan as to what we're talking about. I must have missed it in the Times or Variety.

The rights to the off-broadway version have been released. A regional theatre in LA is doing the show. This production will be the first (legal) production of Carrie in LA. Though this production will use the book and score from the off-broadway revival, it is independent from the other the previous productions.

Yes, so true!

And to the earlier poster -- I think most of the cast will likely be coming from Los Angeles, but I do know that they will be auditioning in New York as well. Early July-ish.

Congrats MB, our company looks set to be doing it here in the UK.

The high school production recently is on You Tube to watch, it's a shame they did pretty much the same staging as Off Broadway
Namo i love u but we get it already....you don't like Madonna

Very exciting! I can't wait to see it :)
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. ``oscar wilde``

from what I can tell, this will NOT be the broadway production, nor the most recent off-broadway revival.

This is the premiere of the musical in Los Angeles.

A completely new production.... the first of this show in LA.

Congrats Songanddance -- I know its a musical you'e long had passion for and have dreamed of producing, so I can't wait to hear what you do with it!

And yes, lightguy, its going to be a completely new production of the show.

Oh wow, a completely new production like new songs etc? How exciting!

The poster for this is amazing.

No it's probably a new production of the licensed off-Broadway version. Good luck! With a strong cast the new version of the show seems thrilling to me. I'd love to see how an audience responds to the show for the first time.
