Betty Buckley on Carrie

Broadway legend Betty Buckley, a Tony winner for her supporting performance in 1983's Cats, has certainly had her successes and her failures throughout her career, but none is so famous as the 1988 flop musical Carrie. That show has become something of a theatrical legend itself and is currently being revived off-Broadway this year, with Marin Mazzie in the role Ms. Buckley once played -- the role of Carrie's mother, which Piper Laurie famously played in the 1976 film. The New York Times spoke with Ms. Buckley about the revival, the problems with the original, and (of all things) American Idol. Click the link below to read her thoughts.
