PHOTO RECAP: "You Shine!" Flashback to a Two-Show Day at Carrie With Birthday Girl Christy Altomare
23 Jun 2014
Christy Altomare (Spring Awakening), who starred as good girl Sue Snell in the 2012 Off-Broadway production of Carrie, celebrates a birthday June 23. She offered Playbill.com readers an exclusive look her two-show day during the show's run. We look back. Happy birthday, Christy!
Armed with a digital camera, she provided a close-up look at her morning routines, shared backstage and between-show activities with fellow cast members and displayed the art of blood removal.
Good Morning! My name is Christy Altomare and I play the part of Sue Snell in the new musical revival of Carrie! This is a little sneak peak of my life on a sunny two-show day.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
