Book by Lawrence D Cohen
Music by Michael Gore
Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Adapted from Stephen King's 1974 novel Carrie
Set in the small New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
Carrie: The Musical follows a young woman with telekinetic powers. Carrie White is an outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences while longing to simply fit in. Carrie is also lost at home, dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class’s most vicious bully, has other ideas. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it and devour everyone around her in flame.
