    What the popular press said...

    "It’s hard to imagine this defanged “Carrie” ever raising your blood pressure."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "It’s not bad enough to be campy fun or stirring enough to really embrace."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Worse than bad — it’s boring."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "The only interesting characters are the mousy Carrie White and her fanatically religious mother, Margaret. Whenever they are not onstage, banality reigns"
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "It still falls short."
    Robert Feldberg for the Record

    "The show is marred by inconsistencies."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Sure ain’t high art, but she’s plenty of lurid fun."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "A muted reincarnation that’s neither fish nor fowl."
    David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

    "Smaller, less bloody and no more compelling."
    Steven Suskin for Variety<.p> External links to full reviews from popular press...
