Pray for your Salvation…
Carrie is back like you’ve never seen her before.
Twenty-seven years after first wreaking havoc, the world’s most talked about Broadway musical is coming to London. Academy Award winning Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore (Fame), and original screenplay writer Lawrence D. Cohen, have transformed Stephen King’s unlikely Cinderella story into an infectiously modern musical that has gripped audiences from Australia to America with its timeless story and thrilling score.
A taunted and terrified seventeen-year-old misfit, Carrie White has a burning secret… a secret that will eventually ignite her revenge. Make your date for the Senior Prom to see who will be crowned Queen, and who will have blood on their hands. After one night with Carrie you will always remember her name.
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, Carrie: The Musical hasn’t been seen in the UK since the legendary original production. Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, it first premiered in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1988 before transferring straight to Broadway, but never made it to London. In 2012 original composer Michael Gore, lyricist Dean Pitchford and librettist Lawrence D. Cohen revised its score and book and this newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision for Carrie: The Musical will now be presented for the first time on the London stage.
Carrie: The Musical marks the return of Paul Taylor-Mills Ltd whose recent success at Southwark Playhouse include the sell-out season of In The Heights and the critically acclaimed Bat Boy: The Musical earlier this year.
This production is recommended for those aged 16+.
