What's there to be afraid of?
A conversation with the artists behind Coraline
Lucille Lortel Theatre, 121 Christopher St

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.
