Thirty years ago today (5/15/88), Carrie, probably the most famous musical flop in Broadway history, closed at the Virginia (now August Wilson) Theatre. It played five official performances and was lambasted by the critics. Done in by inept direction and a hopelessly out-of-touch depiction of high-school life, the show did boast some hauntingly beautiful music (mixed with more than a few duds) and the grandly game performances of Betty Buckley and Linzi Hateley.May 24, 2018 at 3:14 pm #1202553392
