Who could guess that a Stephen King novel could, would or should become a musical? Well, Carrie's back from the grave and she's singing, too! Smothered by her religiously demented mother, tortured at school and struggling with her emerging sexuality, Carrie just wants to be a normal kid... but she's far from normal. With her coming of age, she's discovering paranormal powers. She can move things! Windows break, people fall, knives fly, and the blood pours! It all builds to prom night, a vicious prank, and an act of vengeance that leaves no one but the dead to tell what happened. A classic morality tale: what goes around, comes around... redemption is not guaranteed!
