"Coraline is a unique musical by Stephen Merritt and David Greenspan that is getting a lovely Midwest premiere from Black Button Eyes Productions. Director Edward Rutherford has great passion for this material, and the result is a work that is beautifully designed, well sung, and thematically intriguing."
