New York Post has posted a short article, relating that the stars of the new Carrie musical have discovered a problem -- all dat blood don't wash off so easy!  (The Post article is HERE)

Contact Music (HERE) says the show's stars were left stained red by the first batch of fake blood.  "Ranson and co-star Marin Mazzie, who plays her mentally-ill mother, have been struggling to scrub off the fake blood every night. . ."  This, of course, has the director scrambling to cook up a new batch of. . . blood.

The NY Post article says:
Marin Mazzie and Molly Ranson, the show’s leads, have been freaking out a few West Village residents near the Lucille Lortel Theatre on Christopher Street because the skin of both actresses is so stained from all the fake blood in the show. A rep for the musical said: “The production is aware of the problem and is doing everything it can to find a solution. [Fight director] Rick Sordelet is apparently testing a new [fake blood] formula. No word yet if it washes off, but I hear it does smell like cocoa butter.”
