“Carrie,” one of Broadway's most infamous flops, is making its first appearance in Chicago. The campy musical, recently revived off-Broadway where it flopped again, will be the summer production of Bailiwick Chicago at the Richard Christiansen Theatre at the Biograph Theatre.
Artistic director Lili-Anne Brown said that her company had been pursuing “Carrie” and decided to change its upcoming season once rights became available. The production, she said, will be “fun and a teeny bit campy but we also want to really address what it feels like to be a teenager.” “Carrie,” slated for prom season in May 2014, will replace the planned production of “Applause.”
Lincoln Center, will also be a Chicago premiere.
Chicago audiences are also familiar with Hell in an Handbag's “Scarrie,” also a parody of Stephen King’s novel and subsequent movie, and also bloody.
Bailiwick announces 2013-14 season. Again.
