AN EMPOWERING& ENCHANTING NEW MUSICAL

FOR ANY OF US SEEKING

TO FIND OUR PLACE

IN THE WORLD

Based on the book by New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha van Leer, Between the Lines has music and lyrics by Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel (Disney’s Olaf’s Frozen Adventure), book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Jim Henson's Emmet Otter, James and the Giant Peach), and is directed by Jeff Calhoun (Newsies, Bonnie and Clyde). The show follows Delilah, an outsider in a new school who 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.

Between the Lines had its world premiere production at Kansas City Repertory Theatre in the fall of 2017, and will receive its Off-Broadway premiere in the spring of 2021.

A MUSICAL MEDITATION

ON FEMALE WRITERS,

MENTAL ILLNESS,

AND THE JOURNEY INWARD

My Little Barbizon, with book, music and lyrics by Angela Sclafani, is a musical meditation on female writers, mental illness, and the journey inward. When Annie checks into her room at the Barbizon Hotel, an infamous boarding house for ambitious career girls, she finds company in Joan Didion, Sylvia Plath, Eudora Welty, and Gael Green -- writers and former Barbizon girls. What unfolds are a series of conversations that unravel Annie's fears, desires, and relationship to her place in the world. This presentation will mark the first performance of any material from My Little Barbizon in its development.
