About the Show

Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, Carrie was one of the biggest Broadway flops of all time, playing only 5 performances and now enjoys a huge cult following.

Story:When Carrie, a less-than-popular student with special powers, is mercilessly taunted by her peers, Sue takes pity on her and convinces her boyfriend to take Carrie to prom. But once there, the others play their most mortifying prank yet and Carrie takes deadly revenge on them all.
