Atlantic Theater Company's world premiere production of Cornelia Street opens February 14. Previews began January 20 for the already extended limited engagement which plays through March 5.

Jacob Towney is a father dreaming of a great life for his daughter who finds out the West Village restaurant that has been his sanctuary is set to close. As he tries to save it, he also faces the neighborhood's phantom spirits—but, time and luck are both running out. Cornelia Street features a book by Tony winner Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) with music and lyrics by Mark Eitzel of American Music Club.
