Coming Soon: Brat Productions "Carrie"



This week, I'll be attending a performance of Brat Productions new show "Carrie" for Withersin Magazine.

Based upon the Stephen King novel (and the Brian DePalma film), the show is a twist on what you think you know about the prom queen soaked in pigs blood we've all come to know, love... and laugh at.

Brat Productions description of "Carrie":

In this adaptation, approved by Stephen King himself, Erik Ransom plays the telekinetic teen, alongside a cast of notable Philadelphia actors. Directed by BRAT's Producing Artistic Director Michael Alltop, and featuring some of Philly's leading designers (including a 3-person special FX team), Carrie delivers all of the thrills of the original bestselling novel with surprising and hilarious new twists. Save the date for a prom night you’ll never forget!

So, it should be an interesting evening. I'll be reviewing the show for Withersin, but my thoughts will also be posted here, on the trusty old (incredibly neglected) blog.

Until then, enjoy this...

I'm jealous. Is this the same show that was once a notorious Broadway flop?

No, this is a different production altogether.

Definitely a new take on the material.
