About this show

Poor bored Coraline. She's left to rattle round her perpetually distracted parents' house all by her lonesome. Then one day, her dreams of a better reality are answered as she steps through an old oak doorway and passes into a perfected replica of her own world. Greeted there by a vastly loving Other Mother and kindly Other Father, she's thrilled! But, as the saying goes: Be careful what you wish for... Tony nominee Jayne Houdyshell stars in the title role of this new musical featuring a score by Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, and a book by David Greenspan, who also plays he role of the "Other Mother."
