"CCM’s Carrie is Bloody Good"

Awarded 4 Stars by the League of Cincinnati Theatres and nominations for Hannah Freeman as Carrie White, Jenny Hickman as Margaret White, and scenic designer Sarabeth Hall.


"The production of "Carrie" at CCM was staggering. Once considered one of the worst musicals ever written, this re-conception by Aubrey Berg took our breath away. The performances were Broadway caliber, as is so often true -but Hannah Freeman, Jenny Hickman, Alison Bagli and Eric Geil were perfection. Emily Trumble and Ben Biggers were terrific villains. And Steve Goers's musical direction - wow! Take a bow! It was great night of theater."


"Special praise needs to be offered for the performances of Hannah Freeman and Jenny Hickman as tortured Carrie and Margaret, her judgmental mother.  Freeman delivered that emotional arc beautifully, making her imminent humiliation (which we all know is soon to arrive) all the more painful....Hickman’s alto voice and sallow makeup (not to mention her height) gave her a commanding and frightening presence. Even though Margaret is clearly an abusive parent, Hickman helped us understand why and how she became the woman she is. Hers was the show’s most impressive acting presence."
