Daryl Roth to Bring BETWEEN THE LINES and IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU Concerts to 92Y

92Y announces a new series with award-winning producer Daryl Roth, bringing concert performances of two musicals to its stage.

Between the Lines, a new musical based on the bestselling book by Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha van Leer, premiered at Kansas City Repertory Theatre earlier this year and was hailed by BroadwayWorld as a "well-conceived, masterfully executed, tuneful, funny example of what you hope a Broadway style musical might aspire to be at its best."

Directed by Jeff Calhoun (Newsies), with music by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson (Disney's "Olaf's Frozen Adventure") this enchanting new musical asks, is it possible to live the story you want, if it's not the story you're in? Cast to be announced.

It Shoulda Been You premiered on Broadway in the 2015 season and marked the directorial debut of David Hyde Pierce. Featuring an all-star cast, this refreshingly modern spin on the traditional wedding comedy proves that when it comes to wedding day insanity, it's all relative. Cast to be announced.

Producer Daryl Roth is thrilled to be collaborating on this new series following the incredible reception of Love, Loss, and What I Wore last season.

"I have always adored the programs at the 92Y, especially their exciting and entertaining evenings of music and theatre. I am so happy to be sharing these two wonderful musicals, created by such talented artists, which I hope will delight and charm the 92Y audiences," she said.
