Word has it that the recently closed off-Broadway revival of “Carrie” has recorded an official cast album as of yesterday! This is wonderful news from the MCC theater for us “Carrie” completists and overall fans of the music of the show. The original 1988 Broadway version never received a cast recording after being skewered by critics. Those enchanted by some of the numbers had to suffice with grainy video, poor audio clips on Youtube—or occasional live performances from some of the original cast members like Betty Buckley and Linzi Hateley(in roles inhabited by Marin Mazzie and Molly Ranson in the new production). The CD is expected to be released sometime later this year. So, despite mixed reviews and ultimately closing two weeks early—“Carrie” definitely lives on!
“Carrie” cast album!!!
