Carrie Creative Team Says Musical Trades Horror for High School Reality

In between rehearsals for the new Off-Broadway revisal of the musical Carrie, stars Molly Ranson and Marin Mazzie — playing the bullied and supernaturally gifted Carrie White and her ultra-religious mother Margaret, respectively — join director Stafford Arima to talk about the overhaul of the onetime flop musical inspired by the novel by horror icon Stephen King. With new and revised songs by original songwriters Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore, and a fresh approach to Lawrence D. Cohen's book, the show has a sharpened focus on the reality of the dark dynamics of high school life. For more on the MCC Theater production at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, click here.
