After reading some less than stellar reviews for the Off Broadway Carrie stage play reboot, we weren't exactly expecting it to move on and light up Broadway, but the news of its demise two weeks ahead of schedule did come as a bit of a surprise.
It isn't often, but when opportunities like this come along, we wish we lived closer to New York City. Carrie has returned to the stage in a newly revised Off-Broadway production that began January 31, and to help make up for the fact that many of us won't be able to see it, we have a trio of stills to share.

And here we go again. Carrie the Musical is returning to the New York stage, this time Off Broadway at the MCC Theater with preview performances set to begin on January 31, 2012.

We’re all ready to laugh at Carrie again as the clairvoyant teen gears up for her second go ‘round on the Broadway circuit.
