gaimanNeil Gaiman appears on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Eccles Center Main Stage!

Press Release:

Bestselling and award-winning author Neil Gaiman comes to the stage with decidedly more than an ability to spin a good yarn. He creates and he inspires. His work extends from fiction and comics to screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.

About Neil Gaiman:

Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books. His works for adults include Neverwhere (broadcast as a BBC radio adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch); Anansi Boys; Good Omens (with Terry Pratchett); and the short story collections Trigger Warning, Smoke and Mirrors, and Fragile Things.

His most recent novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane , was described by The Guardian as “a book that summons both the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, and the complicated landscape of memory and for getting.” It too was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. Coraline was adapted as a musical by Stephin Merritt in 2009. Other works for younger readers include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish (illustrated by longtime collaborator Dave McKean); The Wolves in the Walls (made into an opera by the Scottish National Theatre); Odd and the Frost Giants (written for 2009’s World Book Day, illustrated by Brett Helquist); and The Dangerous Alphabet (illustrated by Gris Grimly).

His most recent children’s book is Fortunately the Milk, another bestseller.

Gaiman has appeared as himself on The Simpsons and an episode of Arthur, and has written for the hit television series Babylon 5.

He has also penned screenplays for the original BBC TV series of Neverwhere; Dave McKean’s first feature film, Mirrormask, for the Jim Henson Company; and co-wrote (with Roger Avary) the script to Robert Zemeckis’s Beowulf. Other of Gaiman’s work has been adapted for film, television, and radio, including Stardust (starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer); Coraline (an Academy Award nominee and the BAFTA winner for Best Animated Film); Sandman (currently in development as a major motion picture); and American Gods (aforthcoming television series).

HURRY! Tickets can be purchased through The Fitzgerald Theater’s box office at 651-290-1200.

Neil Gaiman is one of the most engaging, smart writers we know. (@neilhimself) Turns out he’s pretty funny, too. He’s behind the Sandman graphic novels – the only comics to ever make the New York Times bestseller list. He’s won a ton of awards for his writing – The Newberry Medal, the Carnegie Medal in Literature the Bram Stoker award. His written books and screenplays – “American Gods”, “The Graveyard Book”, “Coraline”, “Beowulf”. He returns to Wits™ this spring and charms us all with his English accent and his way with words.

Paste magazine has called him one of the “100 Greatest Living Songwriters.” Stephen King has said of one of Josh’s songs: “This is the most exuberant outburst of imagery since Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” in 1963.” Most everybody agrees Josh Ritter is a rare talent. (@joshritter) He will woo you from the stage of the Fitzgerald at this final Wits show of the season, where you can also be one of the first to get his new novel, “Bright’s Passage” (out in bookstores June 28, 2011). It’s a book that inspired Pulitzer Prize-winning author Debby Applegate say “In his debut novel Josh Ritter displays the same love of language and historical detail, the same irresistible combination of wit and earnestness, that make him such a brilliant songwriter. He’s created a genuine work of literature.” You would be crazy to not see this show.

Bonus: Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett – the Box Dwellers! For ten years Kevin Murphy (@kwmurphy) co-wrote and directed the Peabody Award-winning series Mystery Science Theater 3000, and starred as the plucky red robot Tom Servo. Bill Corbett (@billcorbett) also wrote and performed on the show as well, providing the voice of the robot Crow (v.2.0) and playing various other strange characters — including the all-powerful but clueless alien The Observer (a.k.a. “Brain Guy”). They both are part of the RiffTrax team that makes MP3 tracks you can play in-sync with your favorite movies. We’ve asked them to come and riff on Wits™. They’ll be in a box seat at the Fitz, talking about the show and what people are saying on Twitter. Like our own, modern-day Statler and Waldorf.
