Coraline First Look Event Tonight at Lucille Lortel Theater

Coraline The Musical
STREAM: Coraline Demos

As I mentioned previously, the MCC Theater is bringing Neil Gaiman‘s Coraline to the stage featuring the music and lyrics of Magnetic FieldsStephin Merritt. Tuesday night (April 21) there will be a talk back event at the Lucille Lortel Theater featuring Merritt and the creators of the musical:

This event gives our audience a unique opportunity to go behind the creative curtain and expolore the process of bringing Neil Gaiman’s wildly popular novel, Coraline, to the stage. Bill Goldstein, of the New York Times and WNBC’s “Saturday Today” in New York, will moderate a discussion between the creative team of Stephin Merritt (composer), David Greenspan (book writer), Leigh Silverman (director), and Jayne Houdyshell (Coraline), and take questions form the audience.

The evening will conclude with a first-ever public performance of one of Coraline’s songs; performed on the ukulele and sung by composer/lyricist Stephin Merritt.
