Some important facts from Wikipedia:

Stratford try-out

The show was produced by Friedrich Kurz and the Royal Shakespeare Company and had its first four-week run beginning on February 13, 1988 in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, where it received mixed reviews. Directed by Terry Hands and choreographed by Debbie Allen, the cast included Broadway veteran and cabaret singer Barbara Cook, Charlotte d'Amboise, Gene Anthony Ray, Darlene Love, and Linzi Hateley, in her stage debut, as Carrie.

The production was plagued with script and technical problems. The crew was unable to douse Hateley with fake blood without causing her microphone to malfunction. Rewrites continued following each show,[4] and the program cited a song, "Once I Loved a Boy," which had been rewritten and retitled "When There's No One" prior to the first performance. Cook resigned when she was nearly decapitated by an elaborate set piece - the White's Living Room, during "Open Your Heart" - on opening night, but she agreed to stay on until a replacement could be cast, which turned out to be the remainder of the show's Stratford run.[3] A musical section of the "Locker Room Scene" (which has come to be known as "Her Mother Should Have Told Her") was removed after the initial few performances, and another song, "White Star," was later excised.

The song where the near-decapitation allegedly happened starts at 21:00 but you can't really tell. 34:25 seems like a more plausible spot, honestly.

Troma should do the movie version.

To whom (if anyone) it may concern, Stephen King's CARRIE is a swell novel. Not only does it have a central premise that involves a human being. (instead of a possesed something or other possessed by a malevolent force), it shows the influence of a benevolent force that future King novels lack, namely EDITING! The prose is tight, and the device of using historical records is used to good effect. There are no long internal monolgues where the protagonist refers to himself or herself as "kiddo".

The fewer pages he has to work with, the better. His best stuff is still the short stories collected in Night Shift and Skeleton Crew.
