Photo Flash: CARRIE THE KILLER MUSICAL EXPERIENCE Celebrates Opening Night - Stephen Schwartz, Cathy Rigby and More!
CARRIE The Killer Musical Experience is now performing at the historic Los Angeles Theatre, the first theatrical musical at that venue. Opening Night was last night, October 8, and BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at the opening night bash, plus photos from the starry arrivals, below!
Directed by Brady Schwind and choreographed by Lee Martino, this immersive staging of CARRIE takes the legendary musical off the stage and puts the audience right in the middle of the action, back in the rooms and hallways of high school and, of course, with a prime seat at the prom. This production is based on the acclaimed run this past spring at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, with most of the original La Mirada cast.
Based on the novel by Stephen King, 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 includes Carly Bracco, Adante Carter, Misty Cotton, Valerie Rose Curiel, Bryan Dobson, Kevin Patrick Doherty, Rachel Farr, Jennifer Foster, Jon Robert Hall, Jonah Ho'okano, Ian Littleworth, Emily Lopez, Lyle Colby Mackston, Garrett Marshall, Chris Meissner, Tiana Okoye, Jane Papageorge, Kayla Parker, Jenelle Lynn Randall,Amy Segal, Michael Starr, Kimberly Ann Steele, and Victoria Strong.
CARRIE The Killer Musical Experience will be the first full scale musical to play the Los Angeles Theatre in its 84-year history. The historic Los Angeles Theatre at 615 South Broadway, was opened in January 1931, and was the last and most extravagant of the ornate movie palaces built on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles.
Performances are on sale through November 22. Tickets are available at www.ExperienceCarrie.com or by calling 1-888-596-1027.
