The show, based on the modern classic by Stephen King, with music by Academy Award Winner Michael Gore, lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, "tells the tragic story of a misunderstood high school teenager named Carrie White with extraordinary telekinetic powers. Terrorized by her oppressive religious fanatic mother and bullied by her classmates, Carrie’s violent rampage of revenge remains one of the most terrifying stories of all time."
