Polly Pen said, "I was delighted, intrigued and moved by Black Button Eyes' production -- gorgeously sung and performed by Stephanie and Jennifer."

Director Ed Rutherford said, "It was a privilege to have one of the authors attend our show on October 8. We're delighted that Polly enjoyed the show and are proud to be sharing this piece with the public."

The cast of Goblin Market includes Stephanie Stockstill (Laura) and Jennifer T. Grubb (Lizzie).

The creative team includes Ed Rutherford (Director), Jeffrey Bouthiette (Music Director), Beth Laske-Miller (Costume Designer), Rocky Kolecke (Props Designer), Chazz Malott (Lighting Designer, winner of 2014 BroadwayWorld award for his lighting design for Black Button Eyes Productions' Coraline), and Derek Van Barham (Movement Director).

Two adult sisters, Lizzie and Laura, return to their childhood home and relive the dark fantasies of their adolescence, in which goblin men capered and tempted them to sample forbidden fruits. When Laura succumbs to goblin blandishments, it is up to Lizzie to take a stand and save her sister's life. Blending haunting songs and story theater, this musical adaptation of the poem by Christina Rossetti spins a captivating spell.
