    Stephin Merritt Wins Obie Award for His Musical "Coraline"
    Marcelo Krasilcic

    Congratulations to Stephin Merritt, the recipient of the Obie Award for his music and lyrics to the 2009 Off-Broadway musical Coraline. David Greenspan, who wrote the book and starred in the production as the nefarious Other Mother, received the Sustained Achievement Award. The 55th Annual Village Voice Obie Awards were announced at a ceremony held last night at New York's Webster Hall, co-hosted by Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd) and Anika Noni Rose.

    The categories for the Obies are left intentionally informal, "to recognize persons and productions worthy of distinction in each theater season," according to its presenters. The Obies are chaired by the Voice's chief theater critic Michael Feingold and a committee of judges.

    Merritt will perform his latest project, a score he has written for the classic film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, in a screening at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 9, with David Hegarty on the organ and Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket and Merritt's Gothic Archies cohort) on the accordion. For further details, visit siff.net.

    Strange Powers, the new documentary about Stephin Merrit and The Magnetic Fields, will also be screened at the festival, June 6 and 7, and begins its theatrical release in New York, Los Angeles, and other select North American cities this October. Learn more at strangepowerfilm.com.
