MCC Theater will present a revamped version of the cult musical Carrie beginning Jan. 31, prior to an official opening March 1, at Off-Broadway’s Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Before the production, directed by Stafford Arima, begins Off-Broadway performances, Playbill Video stopped by Carrie rehearsal to catch a glimpse of the upcoming musical and chat with the cast and creative team.

Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie (Next to Normal, Passion, Ragtime) stars as Margaret White, opposite Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County) in the titular role. The cast also includes Christy Altomare, Carmen Cusack, Jeanna de Waal, Derek Klena, Ben Thompson, Wayne Wilcox, Corey Boardman, Blair Goldberg, F. Michael Haynie, Andy Mientus, Elly Noble, Jen Sese, Mackenzie Bell, Jake Boyd and Anne Tolpegin.

Bookwriter Lawrence D. Cohen (who penned the original screenplay), composer Michael Gore and lyricist Dean Pitchford have reworked the musical since it was last seen on Broadway in 1988.
