Jenny Rose Baker, Larry Owens, Felicia Finley, And More in CARRIE 2: THE RAGE, AN UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY

Since 1976 you've been in love with Carrie White, the telekinetic teen whose catastrophic prom night captivated the nation and led to thrilling adaptations, musicals, and revivals. Since 1999, you've completely missed the fact that CARRIE has a legitimate cinematic sequel that tells story of Carrie's half-sister, Rachel, an angst-ridden rebel whose life seems to be looking up until her mysterious powers take hold. Now, with CARRIE 2: THE RAGE, AN UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY (In Concert), you can relive the magic of CARRIE in nearly every way as prom night survivor-turned-school counselor Sue Snell seeks to help Rachel before it's too late, Rachel's hyper-religious mother tries to kill her, and popular high schoolers prove, once again, they are the absolute worst. Following a Jeff Nominated run at the Underscore Theatre Company in Chicago, this extremely 90s experience featuring an original score by Preston Max Allen, music direction by Patrick Sulken, and direction by Portia Krieger is back in NYC to remind you exactly why the White family line has endured for decades.
Photo Flash: Stephen Schwartz Performed at a Benefit To Support JIB Productions

Schweid's connection to Stephen Schwartz goes back decades to when she performed in the national tour of Pippin so it felt natural to reach out to her Connecticut 'neighbor' to help raise funds for her performing and visual arts organization.
