BWW TV: She's Back! CARRIE Meets the Press & Premieres New Song!

The newly reworked and fully re-imagined production of Carrie, opens at the Lucile Lortel Theatre on March 1, 2012. Performances for Carrie begin January 31, 2012 and today, the company met the press and premiered a brand new song from the highly anticipated new show and BroadwayWorld brings you a look below!

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn't been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

The cast is led by Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie (Next to Normal, Kiss Me Kate) as Carrie's evangelical mother, Margaret White, and Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County) as the lonely, vengeful, yet fragile girl at the center of it all. They are joined onstage by Christy Altomare, Carmen Cusack, Jeanna de Waal, Derek Klena, Ben Thompson, Wayne Wilcox, Corey Boardman, Blair Goldberg, F. Michael Haynie, Andy Mientus, Elly Noble, and Jen Sese.

The creative team also includes Matt Williams (choreography), Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Music Direction and Arrangements), David Zinn (Set Design), Emily Rebholz (Costume Design), Kevin Adams (Lighting Design), Sven Ortel (Projections Design), Jonathan Deans (Sound Design), Doug Besterman (Orchestrations), AnnMarie Milazzo (Vocal Design), Leah J. Loukas (Wig and Hair Design), and Rick Sordelet (Fight director).
