Between The Lines Is Now Available for Licensing

Between The Lines is now available for licensing in the US and Canada! The Off-Broadway musical based on the novel by international bestselling author Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer features a book by co-written by Jodi Picoult and Timothy Allen McDonald (Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas ) and music & lyrics by Elyssa Samsel & Kate Anderson (Apple TV+’s “Central Park”).

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.

Between The Lines had a successful run at the Tony Kiser Theatre in 2022. BroadwayWorld 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.” TheaterMania said, “I heartily believe there is a hungry audience out there just waiting to answer the siren call of Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson’s charming and life-affirming score.”

Drew Cohen, President and CEO of Music Theatre International stated, “Between the Lines offers audiences and performers the chance to indulge a fantasy so many of us have had: that is, to engage with fictional characters from a story we love and have them literally come to life by leaping off the page. This romantic comedy has a hilarious and heartwarming book matched with a brilliant score featuring instant classics and new 'audition songs.' We are proud to represent this new show that attendees at Junior Theater Festivals have seen in development for the last few years."

Timothy Allen McDonald, Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson remarked, “Between The Lines has always had a devoted fan base that connects with its mantra of creating the story you want to live in, instead of the one you’re stuck in. We are thrilled that MTI is going to be representing our show, and we look forward to seeing future productions that carry that message far and wide.”
