Carrie the Musical to Return to Broadway

Carrie: The Musical will return to Broadway. Above, we’ve embedded a collection of local news reviewers panning the infamous musical in the late 1980s.

Here’s more from The Washington Post: “MCC Theater said Tuesday that it will remount the musical based on the 1974 Stephen King novel in January. It will be the first time the show has been professionally produced since its 1988 Broadway flop.”

According to the article, the show’s original authors, composer Michael Gore, lyricist Dean Pitchford, and writer Lawrence D. Cohen, have signed on to revitalize the show. Molly Ranson will star in the title role and Marin Mazzie will play her religious mother Margaret White.

Deadline reported that Carrie fans can also look forward to another feature film adaptation of the novel with a screenplay penned by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
