Prolific author Stephen King turns 68 years old on September 21, and what better excuse is there to throw some spotlight on the cult musical adaptation of Carrie? There's obvi no other way to kick it off than with this legendary 1996 clip of Betty Buckley/Linzi Hateley doing "And Eve Was Weak" at Carnegie Hall.
Next pay tribute to MCC's 2012 revival where Molly Ranson proved she should be in every musical always. Just listen to hear wail on the title song.
Then there was Alice Ripley's 2013 Carrie in Seattle, and now Los Angeles plays host to a much-buzzed about revival that immerses the audience right in the middle of this bloody musical massacre.
Look at how cool these photos from LA look, dirty pillows and all.
But also how can we discuss King and Carrie and not have a moment about the upcoming Broadway premiere of Misery, starring Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf? Previews for that thriller begin October 22 at the Broadhurst Theatre.
Now go back to the top, listen to Buckley one more time, then you can return to #Hamiltunes.
