Photo Coverage: Marin Mazzie, Molly Ranson and CARRIE Cast Perform at Barnes & Noble

Ghostlight Records released the long-awaited cast recording of Carrie: The Musical yesterday, September 25, 2012, preserving the recent MCC Theater (Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, William Cantler, Artistic Directors; Blake West, Executive Director) Off-Broadway revival. Just yesterday, the cast gathered at Barnes & Noble to celebrate the release with a special performance and CD signing. BroadwayWorld was there for the big event and we bring you full photo coverage below!

Carrie, which originally appeared on Broadway in 1988, features music by Michael Gore and lyrics by Dean Pitchford (Academy Award®-winning composer and lyricist for the original film Fame), and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, who also penned the film’s screenplay. The new recording, executive produced by Grammy Award® winner Kurt Deutsch (iN THE HEIGHTS) and featuring the critically-acclaimed knockout vocal performances of Tony Award® nominee Marin Mazzie (Kiss Me Kate, Next to Normal) and breakout Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County), will be available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and at Ghostlight’s website (www.ghostlightrecords.com).

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Carrie: The Musical tells the infamous tale of a troubled teenage girl (Ranson) whose tortured social life is made more unbearable by her oppressive religious fanatic mother (Mazzie). Before its musical incarnation, the novel Carrie was famously adapted for the screen in the 1976 Brian DePalma film of the same name starring Sissy Spacek. Since then, in its various incarnations, it has become an iconic pop culture brand all its own, making the Ghostlight Records release a highly-anticipated event.

The 2012 Off-Broadway production of Carrie was directed by Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz, The Secret Garden), with choreography by Matt Williams, set design by David Zinn, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Tony Award® winner Kevin Adams (Spring Awakening, American Idiot), sound design by Jonathan Deans, projection design by Sven Ortel, fight direction by Rick Sordelet, wig and hair design by Leah J. Loukas. Performances of Carrie began January 31, 2012, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) and officially opened on March 1, 2012.
