The Vault: Broadway's Original Carrie Team Talks Fact and Fiction Of the Famous '80s Flop, Part I

In 1988, a girl with telekinetic powers caused a ruckus at the prom and on Broadway, when the pop musical Carrie arrived on Broadway in a high-profile production that lasted only 21 performances. The overstuffed experience — mixing camp, spectacle, horror, sincerity and the committed performances of leading ladies Linzi Hateley and Tony winner Betty Buckley — has entered the mythology of Broadway, remaining in the memory of the theatregoers who witnessed it and the theatre practitioners behind it. Broadway cast members Buckley and Charlotte D'Amboise, who played Margaret White and bad-girl Chris, respectively, as well as original press agent Jim Baldassare, look back on their experiences in the short-lived Broadway production in this two-part series for Playbill Vault.
