The long-awaited, first ever Carrie cast recording is finally here, ending the almost quarter century wait for an official release.

Bootlegging of the show’s intense and stirring song cycle had reached unprecedented levels for a musical over the years among its devout following. This fan-base is now growing exponentially as Carrie is a hot, officially licensable property for high schools, colleges, and theatre companies across the nation.

Stephen King’s classic fable has become a staple of mainstream pop culture from the bestselling novel, to the Academy Award nominated film, to this legendary musical, the latter of which had not been seen or heard since its 1988 Broadway production until now. 24 years on, the show’s original authors teamed with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose). The cast features Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie (Next to Normal, Kiss Me Kate) as Carrie’s evangelical mother, Margaret White, and the stunning Molly Ranson (Jerusalem, August: Osage County) as the lonely, vengeful, yet fragile girl at the center of it all.
