Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical Carrie tells the infamous tale of a troubled teenage girl (Ranson) whose tortured social life is made more unbearable by her oppressive religious fanatic mother (Mazzie). Before becoming a musical, the novel Carrie was famously adapted for the screen in the 1976 Brian DePalma film of the same name starring Sissy Spacek. Since then, in its various incarnations, it has become an iconic pop culture brand all its own, making the Ghostlight Records release a highly-anticipated event.
Carrie: The Musical was produced by Joel Moss and Michael Gore, and features orchestrations by Tony Award winner Doug Besterman (The Producers, Thoroughly Modern Millie), vocal design by AnnMarie Milazzo, and music direction and arrangements by Mary-Mitchell Campbell.
