Devout Dolls

Carrie by Sara Lanzillotta

Web Zen clues us in to Devout Dolls, the work of Sara Lanzillotta. Everything from sweet to morbid whimsy to oh, man, that’s not right can be found here.

For sweet, we would point you to the Octobabies. How can you not go awww when you see an octopus wearing a pirate hat? Answer: you cannot. Or if you can, I bet the dogs bark at you when you make your way back to the human resistance underground bunker, if you catch my meaning.

For morbid whimsy, there’s what’s pictured: yes, that’s Carrie White. And it’s the best take on Carrie we’ve seen since somebody made that cake, you remember? It’s not for sale, alas. You can find that in her gallery.

32 Days of Halloween, Day 27: Carrie the Musical

Carrie the Musical

Well, since we did Evil Dead: The Musical yesterday it only seemed natural to do another horror-themed musical that was…less than well received.

That’s right: it’s Carrie. Some of you, who are less theatrically inclined, might be thinking, “What, are you serious? A Carrie musical?” And to you I say, “We were saying the same thing before it opened in 1988.” You can read all about it on the Wikipedia entry here or on the show’s unofficial website.

And now, here’s some videos that I ran across. Now, bear in mind the quality of the video isn’t that good, as it was shot full proscenium. And the quality of the audio isn’t that good because, well, it was shot full proscenium. And the quality of the music, lyrics and choreography aren’t that good, because, well, it’s Carrie the Musical. If you dig about online, you could probably find a bootleg of the soundtrack. If you were inclined. Or…declined, as the case might be.

Here’s “Don’t Waste the Moon” which appears to be partly a song bitching about Carrie (the character) and partly a song about horny guys.
