Between the Lines - Kansas City Repertory Theatre

Between the Lines

Sep 8 - Oct 1 at Spencer Theatre

From the producers of KINKY BOOTS and GROUNDHOG DAY comes the World Premiere Musical BETWEEN THE LINES, based on the best-selling novel by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer and directed by Jeff Calhoun (NEWSIES).

 

BETWEEN THE LINES is the story of seventeen year old Delilah McPhee, whose life is turned upside down by her parents’ divorce. Forced to move to a new town and start a different school, Delilah finds herself escaping into fiction, developing a literary crush on a handsome prince whose circumstances really… speak to her. This empowering new musical based on the bestselling book by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer asks: what happens when the line between fiction and fantasy becomes blurred with reality? Is it possible to live the story you want, if it’s not the story you’re in?
