Summary

Poor bored Coraline. She'ss left to rattle 'round her perpetually distracted, workaholic parents house all by her lonesome. But late one night, her dreams of a better reality come true as she opens a big, carved, wooden door at the far end of the drawing room and passes into a perfect replica of her own world. When she’s greeted there by a vastly loving Other Mother and a kindly Other Father, she’s thrilled! But as the rats start to creep from the floorboards, and the way home becomes increasingly unclear, Coraline begins to suspect that, perhaps, all is not as perfect as it seems... A musical like no other, CORALINE sprang from the minds of three of the most wildly popular cult figures of our time. Adapted from the terrifying children’s book by Neil Gaiman (author of the international sensation 'Sandman'), this tale of menace and mayhem is set to music and lyrics by smart-rock iconoclast Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, and boasts a book by celebrated downtown actor/playwright, David Greenspan, who serves double-duty as the villainous Other Mother. Tony nominee Jayne Houdyshell ('Well,' 'The Receptionist') stars in the title role, and bringing it all together is acclaimed director Leigh Silverman ('Yellowface,' 'From Up Here,' 'Well').
