Carrie: The Musical moves you—and not because of her psychokinetic powers. The whole idea of a tuneful version of Stephen King’s breakthrough novel (and the Brian DePalma film adaptation that made Sissy Spacek a star) makes people go “Huh?” However, this remade version can grab a heart like the girl’s mind-controlled powers.

Instead, the body of a nude man has been found hanging like a crucifix in the middle of the sign, a death that is quickly declared by the police as a suicide. Carol can’t help but voice her doubts, as not only did she just see the gym rat hitting on an enamored young woman at a grocery store, but why would an obviously vain man kill himself while wearing a red clown nose?
