Photo Flash: New Photos from Bailiwick Chicago's CARRIE: THE MUSICAL Released

Bailiwick Chicago presents the Chicago premiere of the 2012 Off-Broadway revival version of CARRIE: The Musical, with music by Academy Award-winner Michael Gore, lyrics by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford, book by original screenwriter Lawrence D. Cohen, based on the novel by Stephen King, directed by Collective Member Michael Driscoll with music direction by Collective Member Aaron Benham and choreography by Brigitte Ditmars. This unique resurrection of 1988''s CARRIE: The Musical plays through July 12, 2014 at the Victory Gardens Richard Christiansen Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are available at www.victorygardens.org, by calling (773) 871-3000 or in-person at the Victory Gardens Box Office. Check out new photos from the production below!

CARRIE: The Musical will star Callie Johnson as Carrie (Pal Joey, Porchlight Music Theatre-Jeff Award; Next to Normal, Drury Lane Oak Brook) and Katherine L. Condit as Margaret White (Chess, Original Broadway Company; Joseph and A Chorus Line, National Tours). The cast also includes Collective Members Samantha Dubina, Kate Garassino and Ryan Lanning with Kasey Alfonso, Molly Coleman, Damon J. Gillespie (May 29 - June 1), Kelly Anne Krauter, Jon Martinez (beginning June 5), Henry McGinniss, Conner Meinhart, Sawyer Smith, Rochelle Therrien and George Toles.

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it...

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel of the same name, the show's original authors have newly reworked and fully re-imagined the vision of this gripping tale. Set today in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, CARRIE: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award-winnerMichael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment) and lyrics by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

The production team for CARRIE: The Musical includes Stephen H. Carmody (scenic designer), Raquel Adorno (costume designer), Charlie Cooper (lighting designer), Patrick Bley (sound designer), Christopher Kristant (technical director) and Heather Stuck (stage manager).

Review: LADY DAY AT EMERSONS BAR AND GRILL at Mercury Theater Chicago Photo
What did our critic think of LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR AND GRILL at Mercury Theater Chicago? To say Alexis J. Roston's performance as Billie Holiday in LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR AND GRILL is a masterclass in acting and singing is no exaggeration. Roston gives the kind of lived-in, seamless performance that only comes from knowing the material intimately well, and indeed, it's a role she's played many times before.
