Between the Lines

Producer Daryl Roth announced today full casting for the new Off-Broadway musical Between the Lines. The production will star Arielle Jacobs (Aladdin, Wicked), Jason Gotay (Evita, Bring It On: The Musical), Morgan Siobhan Green (Be More Chill), Vicki Lewis (Damn Yankees, Anastasia), Will Burton (Kiss Me, Kate; Hello, Dolly!), Jerusha Cavazos (The Prom), Pierre Marais (Aladdin), John Rapson (Les Misérables), Carrie St. Louis (Kinky Boots, Wicked), and Julia Murney (Wicked).

Between the Lines will begin performances on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 and officially open on May 7, 2020.

Directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun (Newsies) and choreographed by Lortel & Drama Desk Award nominee Lorin Latarro (Waitress), Between the Lines features 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) with orchestrations & arrangements by Tony Award nominee Gregory Rassen (Bandstand).

Between the Lines is an empowering and enchanting new musical for any of us seeking to find our place in the world. An outsider in a new town and a new school, Delilah seeks comfort in the pages of her favorite book, where she feels heard and understood. But as the lines between the two worlds of reality and fantasy begin to blur in extraordinary and astonishing ways, Delilah has to confront whether she alone has the power to rewrite her own story.

"I am thrilled that we have assembled such a talented and dynamic cast to bring this new musical to life," Roth said. "I cannot wait to see them share this incredible story and magnificent score with New York audiences this Spring."

The full design team will be announced shortly.

Between the Lines made its world premiere at Kansas City Rep in Fall 2017, where the musical broke box office records and Broadway World raved, "It is a throwback to the prototypical well-conceived, masterfully executed, tuneful, funny, appropriately danced, and professionally acted example of what you hope a Broadway style musical might aspire to be at its best," and the Kansas City Star called the show, "a whimsical, wonderful production." ." In January 2018, a sold out concert version of Between the Lines was presented at the 92Y in Manhattan.

New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult, with special appearances by her daughter Samantha van Leer, who co- wrote the novel, will also be featured in a special talkback series for ticketholders following select performances. . The schedule will be as follows:
