Carrie set for Broadway revival

2nd June 2011

The stage adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie is to be revived on Broadway over 20 years after New York audiences last saw the production.

Audiences and critics alike reacted unfavourably to the stage version of Carrie in 1988, which ran for a total of just 21 performances, but it is hoped the revival will fare considerably better when its run at the MCC Theatre begins in January next year.

Based on King's bestselling 1974 debut novel, the play follows teenager Carrie White as she comes to terms with puberty and her burgeoning telekinetic powers.

The novel was adapted into a film by Brian de Palma in 1976, with Sissy Spacek receiving positive reviews for her performance in the title role, though Linzi Hately fared considerably worse in the original stage adaptation.

Original creators Lawrence D Cohen, Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford have all collaborated on the revival, making amendments to the script and also changing half of the show's songs in an attempt to appeal to modern audiences.
