CARRIE THE MUSICAL has long been considered the Queen of Broadway Flops. It closed in record time, losing millions of dollars. But can the rumors of backstage chaos, on-stage accidents, audience hysterics and killer reviews really be true? Prepare to discover the surprising story behind the show’s creation and its infamously disastrous run as two obsessive fans, Chris Adams and Holly Morgan, dust off their bootleg VHS tape and decide to find out the truth. They meet the cast, crew and creators, sift through the mysteries and urban legends, chat to some famous super-fans, and find out how Carrie rose from the dead and reinvented itself as a mainstream musical success story. An all-new and exclusive 10-part miniseries on the Broadway Podcast Network.
