CARRIE THE MUSICAL comes to RIVERDALE on Netflix!
25 Apr

CARRIE THE MUSICAL is featured on the Netflix drama RIVERADLE with 11 songs from the musical!

Together with R&H Theatricals, we are thrilled to announce that CARRIE THE MUSICAL (Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford, Book by Lawrence D. Cohen, Based on the novel by Stephen King) is featured on the recent episode of the Netflix series RIVERADLE with 11 songs from the musical in the TV episode!



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…
 
Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn't been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater 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 classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

REVIEWS: 

“Welcome to the prom, Carrie. They’re not going to laugh at you now! Powerfully acted and intensely well sung, this infamous rock musical about a telekinetic teen has the strange power to move you. The new and improved Carrie is gripping."
— Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
 
“The show has guts. Carrie’s score does what a musical score should do: it moves the show along, illuminates the characters and deepens the emotions...  Carrie has real weight and emotional conviction.”
— Richard Zoglin, Time
 
"Ideally suited to a society now obsessed with bullying...should be mandatory viewing for junior and senior high school kids"
— Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times
