WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The gripping tale of an awkward teen outcast with a powerful gift, her fanatically religious mother, and the classmates who push Carrie from unimaginable humiliation to devastating fury
In her small New England coastal town, Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's bullied by the popular crowd. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie has just discovered she's got a special power – the power to move things with her mind. And when a cruel prank at the prom pushes Carrie over the edge, she harnesses that power to exact a ruinous revenge.
Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Carrie: The Musical 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).
