FLASH FRIDAY: You've Never Met A Musical Quite Like CARRIE
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 17, 2012

The last time the musical version of Stephen King's seminal 1974 novel CARRIE was on Broadway the experience ended in a bloodbath for almost all concerned - critically, that is. You see, back in 1988, the mere idea that a creative team had set out to musicalize this gruesome high school horror story was met with vocal distaste and incredulous looks by many on Broadway who had heard about the then-gestating show, currently in its Stratford tryout production over the pond, under the auspices of the Royal Shakespeare Company and featuring a bicoastal cast led by Broadway legend Barbara Cook, no less. Despite mixed reviews and some clear-cut directorial issues overseas, the production moved to Broadway, anyway, except with superstar CATS Tony Award winner Betty Buckley in the role of Margaret White. The rest, as we now know, is history. Frank Rich and the critical community had a field day with the grand opera-meets-GREASE-style show, which, in the original Terry Hands-directed/Debbie Allen-choreographed version, boasted a heavy dose of 80s music video inspiration, as well. Yet, the music was absolutely tremendous more often than not and there were moments of absolute theatrical transcendence of the absolute highest order - "And Eve Was Weak", the searing duet between downtrodden daughter and Medea-esque mother, acting as the highpoint of the near-indescribable evening. Now, almost twenty-five years later, all of that is blood under the bridge and CARRIE is finally back in New York in a new, completely rewritten and re-envisioned production starring Marin Mazzie and Molly Ranson. Stafford Arima helms the completely contemporary and fully fleshed out telling of the modern-day classic, the story of a very special girl with telekinetic abilities and the tormenters who compel her to unleash its most horrific power - on prom night, as it were. The screenwriter of Brian De Palma's wildly successful 1976 film version, Lawrence D. Cohen, has gone back to the source material along with original composer Michael Gore and lyricist Dean Pitchford and made essentially an entirely new show out of it - with only the finest, most unforgettable (in a good way) musical moments from the original 1988 show remaining. Indeed, what is now playing in previews at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, presented by MCC and opening March 4, is the fulfillment of a dream more than thirty years in the making by Cohen, and the realism-based production is now, finally, the ultimate realization of the original direction of the piece as envisioned by its creators way back when. While Carrie's prom night may end in a fugue of fire, bloodshed and the deaths of many, the fate of the musical is evidently a far happier one - even if it took almost thirty years to get everything in its perfect place and time.
