News   PHOTO CALL: Musical Coraline Opens Off-Broadway
Jane Houdyshell and the company of MCC Theatre's new musical, Coraline, celebrated their opening night Off-Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Leigh Silverman directed the Stephin Merritt (music and lyrics) and David Greenspan (book) musical based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Houdyshell stars as the titular nine-year-old opposite Julian Fleisher, Francis Jue, January LaVoy, Elliot Villar, William Youmans and Greenspan.

"Poor bored Coraline. She's left to rattle 'round her perpetually distracted, workaholic parents' house all by her lonesome," show notes reveal. "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... [But] Coraline begins to suspect that, perhaps, all is not as perfect as it seems..."

Here are photos from the opening night:
