This "Carrie" is director Victoria Bussert's version – a powerful wallop of a piece with a smart, pop sensibility balanced by real emotion. In that way, it's like nothing that has come before. This one will give you nightmares and break your heart.
In its revival, the MCC Theater company hoped to "rescue 'Carrie' from oblivion and to give her new life," but Bussert, who heads up the Baldwin Wallace University Music Theatre Program, has actually done it.
