Theater Review: ‘Carrie: The Musical’ is Surprisingly Serious

5 June 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Some people spend the rest of their lives trying to compensate for slights felt in high school – that social jungle is staged in “Carrie: The Musical.” Based on Stephen King’s novel, the story of Carrie White is presented as an adversarial tale by Bailiwick Chicago at Victory Gardens Theater.

Play Rating: 4.0/5.0

Say the words “Carrie: The Musical” and the first reaction might be a preparation for a campy romp. The Stephen King story is best remembered in the Brian De Palma film of 1976, starring Sissy Spacek. Although the film is serious, the disco-era styles and graphic ending of that version could easily be sent up. But this stage adaptation – in what began as a 1988 straightforward Broadway musical – is more interested in exploring the bullying torture of the main character, and the consequences for her persecutors. This Carrie is serious business about high school rejection, and is brought together »
