Last fall we first heard that Carrie, arguably the most infamous flop in Broadway history—they even named a wonderful book for it—was coming back to the boards. And here we have confirmation, Carrie White is going to be killing them all Off-Broadway next season with previews kicking off at the Lucille Lortel theater next January.

The musical—which at $8 million dollars was the Spider-Man of its time and closed three nights after it opened—is going to have a "fully re-imagined vision" by the original team (Lawrence D. Cohen, Michael Gore, and Dean Pitchford doing the book, music and lyrics) and will be directed by Altar Boyz's Stafford Arima.

One question is whether the creators will go for all-out camp with this revival or go the opposite direction and try and make a legitimate horror musical, something only really Sweeney Todd has ever done successfully. On the side of a straight horror performance is the fact that Stephen King's first book is actually pretty good. On the side of the camp is the fact that it is a musical about a telekinetic girl who [spoiler alert] is made fun of for getting her period in the school showers, has a crazy religious mom with sex issues (check out Betty Buckley as the mom singing And Eve Was Weak in the original flop—we'll wait), and who gets her bloody revenge on her high school after having pigs blood poured on her at prom.

Really though, as long as they cut out the stairway to heaven that Carrie ascended in the original (above) we'll probably see it either way—as will the hundreds of thousands of theater snobs who have spent the past twenty-odd years lying about having seen it the first time around.
