'Carrie' heads to New York stage as musical

NEW YORK

The movie may be 35 years old, but it's still a hit with YouTube fans.

The story of the teenage girl with telekinetic powers who gets revenge on high school bullies is heading to Broadway as a musical.

MCC Theater said Tuesday that it will remount the musical based on the Stephen King novel in January. Broadway tried this once before in 1988, but the show flopped.

MCC says the title role will be played by Molly Ranson, who's on Broadway in "Jerusalem." Marin Mazzie from "Next to Normal" will play her nasty mother.
