It’s been quite a journey. Holly and Chris look back at their Carrie adventure and try and answer some burning questions.

We ask an expert, author of ‘Flop Musicals of the Twentieth Century’ Stephen Purdy, if Carrie really can be defined as a flop compared to some prominent recent mega-failures.

We also find out from writer Peter Michael Marino, creator of the doomed ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ musical, what it’s like to have your new musical trashed (FYI: we saw it twice and had a great time), plus the legendary Alice Ripley also shares her experiences of being in well-loved musicals which were hit by premature closure, like ‘American Psycho’ and ‘Side Show’.

And finally – a post mortem. Where did it go wrong? Who was to blame? Could Carrie have been fixed? Can you even do horror on stage? Can we just do this as a job forever?

Plus, we leave the last word to our gang of original cast members to tell us how this funny little musical changed their lives forever.

Friends of Carrie – join us on our social channels and share your feedback!
