MCC Theatre's Coraline musical reviews

Three reviews of the MCC Theater's Coraline musical. The NY Times review was definitely the most kind.

1. NY Daily News: "It's naggingly repetitive and, at 90 minutes, long outstays its welcome."

2. Reuters: "Book writer David Greenspan's adaptation is choppy and disjointed, failing to compellingly capture the source material's narrative tension and making the evening feel much longer than the 100-minute running time."

3. NY Times: "the droll, dry and very cerebral production . . . is less like a full-bodied show than the idea of one."
