Photo Coverage: Piper Laurie & More at the First Preview for CARRIE!

The newly reworked and fully re-imagined production of Carrie, the musical, had its first preview last night, January 31, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. BroadwayWorld was on hand to capture the exciting evening - including a special delivery from Carrie alumna Betty Buckley! - and brings you complete photo coverage 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 winning composer Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winning lyricist Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose). The cast will be led by Ms. Mazzie (Next to Normal, Kiss Me Kate) and Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County) as the lonely, vengeful, yet fragile girl at the center of it all. An official opening night is set for March 1, 2011.
