Carrie The Musical finally makes her London debut.
Twenty seven years after first wreaking havoc, the worlds most talked about Broadway musical is coming to London. Newly reworked and fully re-imagined, Carrie: The Musical will receive its London Premiere at Southwark Playhouse from 1 May 2015 until 30 May 2015.
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn’t been seen since the original legendary RSC production; Premiering in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1988 it transferred straight to Broadway never making it to London.
In 2012, its score and book were revised by original composer Michael Gore, lyricist Dean Pitchford and librettist Lawrence D. Cohen transforming Stephen King’s unlikely Cinderella story into an infectiously modern musical that has gripped audiences from Australia to America.
Carrie: The Musical will be directed by Gary Lloyd, music is by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford and book by Lawrence D. Cohen. Casting is to be announced.
