New Musical 'Between The Lines' To Open Spring 2020 Off-Broadway

Daryl Roth's newest musical Between the Lines will begin performances Off-Broadway this spring!

Between the Lines features direction by two-time Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun (Newsies), choreography by Lortel & Drama Desk Award nominee Lorin Latarro (Waitress) a book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach) and music & lyrics by Elyssa Samsel & Kate Anderson (Disney Animation’s Olaf’s Frozen Adventure).

Performances begin on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 and officially open in May 2020 at Off-Broadway’s Tony Kiser Theater at Second Stage.

This enchanting new musical will delight everyone who has ever wondered that if they could have the power to change their own story, would they? Seventeen-year-old Delilah McPhee’s life has recently been turned upside down, so when the handsome hero of her favorite book literally starts speaking to her, she thinks she’s found the perfect escape from the challenges of high school and family issues. See what happens when the line between fiction and fantasy becomes blurred with reality.

Producer Daryl Roth said, “At the heart of good theatre is a story worth telling. When I first read this book by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer, I was captivated and felt it had the potential to become a beautiful musical. I am always drawn to material that sheds light on women's stories, and encourages my daughter’s and granddaughters' generations to find their own strength, truth, and confidence.Between the Linesdoes just that. The gifted composer and lyricist, Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson, have written an amazing score, and I’m thrilled to be giving them their well-deserved New York debut.”

Casting, design team and an Opening Night date will be announced at a later date. Tickets for Between the Lines will go on sale beginning Tuesday, October 15, and will range from $55 – $125. For more information visit
