With performances beginning on January 31, 2012, it was inevitable that word would start trickling out regarding the final casting lineup for Carrie, the newly reworked and re-imagined production of the short-lived 1988 Broadway musical being performed at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Today we bring you the full cast and crew for director Stafford Arima’s Carrie, which opens officially on March 1st.
Per Broadway.com joining previously announced stars Marin Mazzie (as Carrie’s mother, Margaret) and Molly Ranson (in the title role) are Christy Altomare, Carmen Cusack, Jeanna de Waal, Derek Klena, Ben Thompson, Wayne Wilcox, Corey Boardman, Blair Goldberg, F. Michael Haynie, Andy Mientus, Elly Noble, and Jen Sese.
Carrie White is a misfit. At school she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it…
Carrie features music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, who adapted the 1974 novel by Stephen King for the 1976 Brian DePalma film.
The creative team includes Matt Williams (chorography), Mary-Mitchell Campbell (music direction and arrangements), David Zinn (set design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Kevin Adams (lighting design), Sven Ortel (projections design), Jonathan Deans (sound design), Doug Besterman (orchestrations), AnnMarie Milazzo (vocal design), Leah J. Loukas (wig and hair design), and Rick Sordelet (fight director).
