“Magnetic Fields” Frontman Creates “Coraline” Musical

Stephin Merritt, lead singer for the indie band “The Magnetic Fields,” recently launched an off-Broadway musical version of “Coraline,” the Neil Gaiman book (and movie). In an interview with “Black Book,” he talks about Gaiman’s potential as a crossover artist, and how his play stacks up again the $75 million-grossing animated film:

“We like to think to say that our 3D is more realistic, is absolutely perfect. And our actors move effortlessly. Aesthetically, the differences between doing off-Broadway musicals with prepared piano score and a stop-motion animation movie in Hollywood are so far apart. I saw the movie. I think it’s my favorite 3D movie ever. It has basically nothing to do with my job.”
