Between the Lines
Live the story you want, even if it’s not the story you’re in.

Between the Lines is the new Off-Broadway musical based on the novel by international bestselling author Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer featuring a book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas) and music & lyrics by Elyssa Samsel & Kate Anderson (Apple TV+’s “Central Park”), in their New York theatre debuts.

Between the Lines is an empowering and enchanting new musical for anyone who has ever sought to find their 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 by the handsome Prince Oliver. But as the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur in both extraordinary and astonishing ways, Delilah discovers how to find her place in the real world while keeping her dreams alive.

Currently playing at The Tony Kiser Theater at Second Stage, Between the Lines is directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun (Newsies) and choreographed by Paul McGill (The Legend of Georgia McBride).
