Chicago Theater Shows You Can't Miss This Summer

Time Out Chicago

Neil Gaiman's semi-macabre children's book, about a lonely girl who finds a hidden doorway to a creepily perfect parallel world, made its debut as a stage musical in 2009, with a book by playwright David Greenspan and music by Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields. Edward Rutherford directs the Chicago premiere under the auspices of the appropriately-named, ad hoc Black Button Eyes Productions, with musical direction by Nick Sula.
