From the cover story of today's Plain Dealer - Friday Magazine (based on the photo above by BW alumnus Ben Meadors '12) to this month's Cleveland Magazine to BroadwayWorld Cleveland and beyond, the Baldwin Wallace University and Beck Center for the Arts collaboration on CARRIE: THE MUSICAL has attracted a lot of early media attention heading into tonight's opening night. Today's PD preview says the production has "found its sweet spot, its horror and heart."

The partnership will showcase the talents of students in BW's acclaimed Music Theatre program, alongside alumni who are equity actors. In an article titled, Blood Bash, BW director of Music Theater Victoria Bussert told Cleveland Magazine that CARRIE, based on the novel by Stephen King,  is "a story that will generate its own conversations about how we treat other people who are different than we are."
