In the first revival since its 1988 Broadway run, Carrie adapts Stephen King’s famous horror novel into a chilling night of musical theater. The dark tale revolves around an ostracized teen who is bullied both at home and at school and eventually develops psychokinetic powers, which leads to tragedy at the prom. Award-winning director Stafford Arima puts actors through their paces with a production conceived in collaboration with the show’s original creators. Molly Ranson makes her professional musical debut as Carrie after successful turns with August: Osage County and Jerusalem, and Tony-Award winning Marin Mazzie plays Carrie’s unhinged mother, Margaret. The riveting performance takes place in the intimate Lucille Lortel Theatre, whose 299-seat space allows audiences to catch each emotional nuance and crowd-surfing stagehand.
Liev Schreiber. Laurie Metcalf. David Duchovny. Kathleen Turner. These are just a handful of the lauded actors who have graced MCC Theater's productions throughout the years. Surprisingly, the company didn't start with its eyes trained on the stars with the highest wattage—the founders came together in 1986 to create a workshop-like space to develop their own artistic voices as actors, directors, and writers. After the peer-led classes proved fruitful, they staged showcases and later full-scale off-Broadway productions that attracted the talents of renowned artists. Today, MCC continues to produce buzzed-about works that tackle ethical dilemmas and world premieres by playwrights on the rise.
